I've been a professional writer for thirty years and have 10 books and well over 100 published short stories to my credit (including 15 major anthology appearances). 

A partial list of my titles: SO DARK THE NIGHT, DISLOYAL SON and THE LAST HUNT.

Two of my recent books have been shortlisted for national independent press prizes and my work has earned praise from reviewers and readers around the world, including STRANGE ADVENTURES (U.K.) who wrote: "At last Canada has a literary equivalent of David Cronenberg!"

All of my novels and collections are available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble...or (preferably) can be ordered through your favourite local independent book shop.
