I live in Canada. I write books. When I’m not writing, I read. I’m also a historian, a coffee drinker and a cinephile. My first novel, A Paunch Full of Pesos, is a spaghetti western and I’m currently working on a historical fantasy about goblins and vikings in North America. Graham Greene, Philip K. Dick, George Orwell and Haruki Murakami are some of my favourite authors. I’ve been known to steal words and stash them in my pockets. I believe disinterest is a valid political opinion.
