Let me tell you a story....

I have been publishing non-fiction for more than 25 years. I’ve been a National Magazine Award finalist, and my stories have appeared in publications including The Walrus, Reader's Digest, The Globe and Mail, The Gazette (Montreal), Halifax Magazine, and East Coast Living,

I write regularly for local news site The Halifax Examiner, and for Saltscapes, where I do a series of as-told-to stories featuring people from around Atlantic Canada.

A longtime fermentation enthusiast, my book Adventures in Bubbles and Brine (Formac, 2019) explores Nova Scotia fermentation traditions (everything from craft beer to sauerkraut) and the people reviving and reinventing them.

In addition to writing non-fiction, I also produce audio documentaries, write fiction and comics, and provide writing and editing services to corporations, agencies, and non-profits.

I recently graduated from the University of King's College MFA in Creative Non-fiction program, and am working on a book about new understandings of serious mental illness, as well as a longer upper-elementary fantasy graphic novel series.

On this site, you can find samples of my work, listen to some of my radio documentaries, and keep up to date with my latest projects.
