Birthday? February 1

When did you start writing? I have always enjoyed writing, starting from writing longer-than-necessary sentences for spelling assignments in grade school. I wrote for student newspapers in grade school, high school, and university, and also had a stint as a sports writer for a daily newspaper in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

When and what and where did you first get published? One of my first paid-for published items was a poem published in Herizons magazine when I was at grad school. I also wrote sports pieces for the student newspapers at McMaster University and Dalhousie University.

What themes do you like to write about? I enjoy writing about themes related to nature, the environment and animals, as well as mysteries. 

What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? As a child, I enjoyed Kipling's The Jungle Book, C.S. Lewis's Narnia series, and Walter Farley's Black Stallion stories. As a teenager, I discovered Andre Norton and Robert A. Heinlein. I like these authors' ability to tell simple but compelling stories in vivid settings with characters that the reader can care about.
