I’ve been a writer since age 2, when I scrawled a series of EKG-like pencil traces on the inside cover of my father’s copy of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (sorry Dad).
My first paid piece of writing was published in 1978 when I was 19: a feature on the Canadian Student Film Festival which appeared in Cinema Canada magazine. I was paid probably about $25. I had turned pro!
Since then I have practiced journalism, scriptwriting, copywriting, editing, and technical writing for a large corporation—oh yes, and fiction-writing. Now, with the advent of e-books and this website, I am also a publisher, and very glad to be one.
I was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, and live in North Vancouver with my wife Kim.
