Not much makes us humans unique; it's all a matter of degree.   For example, worker bees tell each other stories when they hang out together.  But story is something we've taken farther than any other animal.  As a species, we've turned the dial to 11 on spinning yarns.  We're each of us a story we tell ourselves.

Writing is the secret obsession. The other thing pays the bills. I write fantasy, science fiction, thrillers, and curious chimeras of all these. I write for MG, YA, and adult readers. I don't always use the same name.

Current projects:

Clanmarks, a post-post-apocalyptic YA SF & F mashup, featuring a sixteen-year-old sometime goatherd whose birthmark is the genetic brand of her ancestors' crimes. Warring highland clans, gene-edited witches, weaponized corpses, and one girl's bid to choose her own path.

The Gem Merchant's Son, MG+. Jasper Blackwood sees ghosts and was expelled from school. His father has vanished and his mother is wanted for debt. As if that isn't enough, he's been conscripted by a crafty goddess to steal the world's most dangerous stone.

Detective series: James Arklow, cult-busting psychologist with demons and ghosts of his own to contend with. Gregory Fate, ex-RCMP, now a small-time PI in a world of big-time crime.

Fantastic worlds, unlikely heroes!
