Introducing… Firelight Interview Series

I miss fires. Not for heat: we’ve got one of those burning in our wood furnace right now. Rather the kind that you sit by, feet propped up on the rock ring, a bottle of beer in the camp-chair cup holder, while the flames reflect on the faces of your friends. There’s spontaneous storytelling; laughter; […]

Talking About Swarm on T.V.

This morning I got myself to the downtown studios of CHCH to have a brief chat on Hamilton Morning Live about Swarm, peak oil, bees, and hope. Here it is.

Media (about) Swarm

I guess I’ve missed posting a few things here lately… One is the fact that the Toronto Star did a brief review of Swarm last week, calling it “one of the more realistic recent imaginings of the shape of things to come.” Quill & Quire’s review is also now online. As of right now it’s […]

Travels with Swarm

THIN AIR was absolutely fantastic! Such an amazing opportunity to meet readers and writers and literature lovers, including a group of keen creative kids at Vincent Massey Collegiate.

Ready to Roll

We’re ready to roll, people. Swarm is now up on the Brindle & Glass website and Amazon. It’s all set to launch in mid-September and can be pre-ordered online. Or, better still, support your local indie bookstore (Lord knows they need the love) and/or library (ditto) and ask them to pre-order it for you. My […]

Swarm Cover Art

Lately I’ve been off my blog a bit. The solidity of the winter’s grip has made the days seem almost the same – blue sky, white snow – as if the deep-freeze is having an effect on time. But it’s not like things aren’t happening:  J. and I danced with new friends until the wee […]
