The author of three print books and two electronic books of poetry, I began publishing professionally in 1990. My poetry, fiction and visual work has appeared in literary journals and magazines across Canada, in the USA and Europe, including Canadian Literature, Descant, New Quarterly, Paragraph, Rungh, TickleAce, The Toronto Review, and West Coast Line. My work has also appeared in numerous small and micro press chapbooks, broadsides, etc.
I stopped writing for several years, early in the new millennium, for a number of complex and complicated reasons. It has been a long journey back. Progress is slower now, but I hope to finish some projects this year so that this page will need updating.
