Author of "Hunting Muskie: Rites of Passage - A Short Story Collection" by Michael Robert Dyet" - October 2017, Blue Denim Press.

"The lead story Slipstream ---actually it's a novella that takes up some 80 pages in the collection---is a staggering work of the imagination that culminates in a surprise ending."
~ Ben Antao, Author of Blood & Nemesis and other works

"It is this constant interplay of our own actions and the big stage on which we get to perform them, that drives the various narratives. Thus, a man attempting to make restitution after defrauding a church, but seeing his son slip into the same moral lapse, realizes that he has to make a hard choice about his marriage; a washed-up hockey enforcer turned bouncer learns the painful way that our misdeeds, no matter how long in the past, have their way of coming back to haunt us and sometimes with unforeseen and catastrophic consequences."
~ Jake Hogeterp, Author of On Cloud Nine

Author of the self-published "Until the Deep Water Stills: An Internet-Enhanced Novel" - print novel with unique online companion. Double winner: Reader Views Literary Awards 2009.

Honours BA, York University, Creative Writing Program.
