Husband, father, writer. Happily married since 1992 and a father since 2003, I've been a writer as long as I can remember. Meat-free since '95. Born in Toronto and grew up in London, Canada.

I have published novels, poetry, short fiction, feature articles, comic strips and book reviews in various media.

I live in London with my wife and daughter, those to whom all my work and play is dedicated.
