I write in a variety of genres, each work teasing the dynamics of choice among multiple realities: romantic relationships, plot endings, murder suspects, virtual worlds, alternate timelines, narrative loops, stylistic colorings.
Most of my stories and essays are set in places where I like to spend time: natural surroundings. My writing draws from two decades of homesteading in the interior mountains of British Columbia. Other adventures include teaching for three years in Quebec Inuit villages – an experience from which the mystery novel Hunter’s Daughter arose – and indulging a lasting passion for West African drumming as a student, teacher, performer and author.
I have contributed short fiction and essays to a variety of periodicals and anthologies since 1976, when I received an MA in Canadian literature from the University of Victoria. Currently working as a freelance copyeditor, helping other writers improve their work for publication, I make my home in Victoria, BC, with winter travels in warmer locations.
