Welcome to my website and blog–which lately focuses on Stuff.

I’m busy with a year-long project of de-cluttering and thinking about how to live more in tune with the environment. I’ve always tried, but things are getting bad, aren’t they?

It also helps me spend less time taking care of stuff and more time writing. As both a novelist and filmmaker, I always have too much to do. You can read about my projects on the Book and Film pages.

Lately, I’ve been excited about working with editors and designers on my new novel.

Mad Richard will be published in March, 2017, in both Canada and the U.S. Look for it from ECW Press. Read about it here.

And here’s some other news. I’ve recently won third place in the 2016 Bridport Prize for short stories with my story Steroid Dreams. According to judge Tessa Hadley, “Steroid Dreams is just so beautifully written, every sentence poised and funny and intelligent. The prose has a marvellous rhythm, rich with perceptions.” See more in News

As well, my short story, Montreal River, has just been published in the summer issue of Prism International, having been one of the winners in Prism’s 2016 short fiction contest.
