Nowick Gray writes in a variety of genres, each work teasing the dynamics of choice among multiple realities: whether romantic relationships, plot endings, murder suspects, virtual worlds, alternate timelines, narrative loops, stylistic colorings.

Nowick works as a freelance copy editor, performs and teaches West African drumming, and enjoys nature photography. Educated at Dartmouth College and the University of Victoria, he taught in Inuit villages in the Arctic before carving out a homestead in the BC mountains. In more recent years he calls Victoria, BC home, while wintering in tropical locations.

Should I have looked instead to Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, Romeo and Juliet, or gosh, Tristan and Iseult, for a tragic model from the literary canon? Doesn't matter. I vote with my heart, and "sentimental" as Waller's book might have been (Wikipedia, citing critics), the book was a 3-year bestseller for a reason: pure powerful and convincing human emotion tied in that most heartwrenching of knots, the insolvable triangle in an unforgiving society.(less)

C.S. Lewis
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
