More fiction & narrative non-fiction: blood is thicker: an anthology of twisted family traditions & The Pilgrimage Chronicles: Embrace the Quest
I’m a wanderer and have lived, worked, and/or travelled in many countries. My nomad life has resulted in me swatting mosquitoes in northern Canada, dodging snakes on an Australian sheep station, growing to love goats and hate fleas on an isolated mountain farm in the French Pyrenees, being the steersperson on a North Vancouver dragon boat team, and becoming an expert eater of momos—with spicy red chilli sauce—while living in a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Nepal. My fiction and narrative non-fiction writing has been published in magazines and newspapers and a memoir piece was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Competition. For many years I was a film and television screenwriter and story editor, which lead to me teaching screenwriting in Canada, India, and China.
These days I live on a small British Columbia island connected to an even smaller island by a one-lane bridge. I like to watch Orca whales swim by local Thieves Bay, write travel adventure novels, and hike long distances in Europe with my always enthusiastic husband. I have yet to meet the aliens or alligators that I’ve put in my novels, but I remain hopeful.
