Born and raised in Winnipeg, Man. (but also Edmonton, Alta.), I did a B.A. in Theatre and performed in local theatre before spending two years in Iceland, learning the language and literature of my ancestors (and getting to know my distant cousins). Have worked in publishing in some capacity for more than 20 years — primarily newspapers but also for local publishers. My short fiction (SFF/horror/UF) has been published in numerous anthologies and some magazines.
