All About Moi!
Lately I’ve been telling everyone some half baked story of how I’m the spawn of a typewriting chimp and a literary ninja and I eat Unicorns to sustain my crazy imagination.
Here’s the truth though: ever since I opened that book of Fairy Tales when I was a kid, I loved reading and spent countless hours recreating a parallel universe where Red Riding Hood kung-fu kicked the wolf in the jugular and Snow White discovered a spell to merge all the dwarves together to form a Super-Dwarf that tossed the evil step-mother into the sun.
With this love for reading and writing, I took it to the next level and published a book. Sadly no super human fairy tale characters (but it’s always been on my radar).
My new dystopian and urban fantasy teen novel Shadow of Wrath is now published by Strange Crow Publications and can be found at http://www.strangecrowbooks.com/books/shadowofwrath
The follow up is Awake the Ghosts, set to be published late 2013.
My short fiction works has been published by Crow Toes Quarterly Magazine, Fiction and Verse literary magazine, and upcoming Denizens of the Dark. I enjoy writing contemporary fantasy with an emphasis on creating urban mythology for my stories.
I was born in Toronto, Ontario where I graduated from University of Toronto’s Fiction Writing course. I have travelled all over the world including Germany, Netherlands, Italy, France, Spain, Czech Republic, Austria, United Kingdom, Thailand, Hong Kong, Cambodia just to name a few. My diverse experience amongst other cultures provides inspiration for my stories.
I currently live in Toronto with my wife where I enjoy the the hot summer days and the cold winter nights while my brain dances on a cloud against the backdrop of shimmering stars.
