I'm an author, columnist and poet whose works have appeared in On Spec, Leading Edge, The Ottawa Citizen, Jamais Vu, The Drabblecast, and more. I won the Prix Aurora Award for poetry in 2018, been nominated seven other times in various categories, and twice been shortlisted for the Sunburst Award in short fiction.

Beyond writing, I'm a contributing editor for AE: The Canadian Science Fiction Review.

Raised in small-town New England, a place rich with legends and ghost stories, I now live in Ottawa, Ontario.
