At Dolores Mission


I’m a Canadian-born fantasy and science fiction writer, currently living in the Boston area. While I enjoy both reading and writing within many different genres and sub-genres, I admit to a particular fondness for high fantasy, most particularly for those multi-volume series of 800+ page novels that everyone loves to make fun of. Especially the ones with elves.

Although I am working on my own 800+ page novel (with elves!), everything I’ve published so far has been short fiction. I’ve listed all my publications below; if you’re interested in reading any of the stories, you can find links on the Start Reading tab.
