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 was the first winner of the Lillian Kroll Prize for Creative Writing at Western University, where I also completed a degree in English Literature. 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.
