Occupation Writer and Educator
Location Athens, Ontario, Canada
Introduction I am an author and educator. My novels include Leaving Wyoming, which was listed in Bartley's Top Five in the Globe and Mail for Best First Fiction; Houdini's Shadow, which was translated into Spanish; and, Drift, which was long-listed for the Relit Award. The Road To Atlantis, my most recent novel -- traces a family's dissolution and healing following a tragic accident. It was short-listed for the Mary Scorer Book Award. I live in Eastern Ontario with my wife and two children. Aside from my work as a teacher and writer, I enjoy travelling and hiking. My travels have taken me to twenty-six different countries and four continents. Every two years for the last decade, I have also lead humanitarian missions to Nicaragua. At the moment, I am slowly working my way through the 46 high peaks of the Adirondacks. I am also a crafstsman and luthier with a small shop and studio on Lake Eloida, where I build Bludstohn Guitars.
