I was born in Hastings County, so when I walk through a field, I know the names of the wild plants, which ones taste sweet. I know what bird is singing.
And in this city, I like the plunging quiet ravines and the noisy variety in the company of writers and readers.
By myself, I love the willing surrender that happens when I read, and time flies when I'm writing: is it that late?
Formally, I have two degrees in film from York University, and taught English and film at the college and collegiate level. Awards for screenplays include first prize from the NFB for How to Call Cows, and more recently, a story "The Happiness" was (parenthetical) magazine's entry for the prestigious 2016 Journey Prize.
