I'm the author of The Haunting of Vancouver Island (BC and Amazon Bestseller) and Way of the Wraith. I've been published online and in print including the Times Colonist, Nelson's Canadian Corrections textbook, Portal magazine, and elsewhere. I have a degree in writing from Vancouver Island University, where I was awarded the Barry Broadfoot Award for Journalism and the Gisele Merlet Creative Writing Award.

Besides being a writer and photographer, I'm also an Afghanistan infantry veteran and cancer survivor. Nerve damage from chemotherapy left me with non-visible disabilites, which I continue to deal with ten years later.
