2016 In Life and Writing


For all that 2016 was a problematic year on the world stage, it was a good one for me. I became a Canadian citizen, I was admitted to Memorial University of Newfoundland's Folklore PhD program, and I spent two weeks in Iceland, among other things.

On the writing front, things were less busy but still productive. My novelette "T is for Three (At the End of All Things)" appeared in the C is for Chimera anthology, and my second collection The Longest Road in the Universe: A Collection of Fantastical Tales was released with good advance reviews. If you're in a position to vote for literary awards in 2017 and would like to see either of these pieces for review, please let me know, and I'll send you a copy in your preferred digital format.

That's all for now. I'm writing from a hotel in Port Aux Basques and must needs get on the road. Happy New Year to you all!
