I have written a few novels for teenagers. My work includes: Rise of the One-Eyed King (Iron Mask Press), Flying Feet (Orca), Rancor (Iron Mask Press) and Pyre (Simply Read Books). Now I work as a library tech while road tripping on weekends in my Jeep.

New Blog

You may ask yourself, “Why the new blog?” That’s probably the most logical question right after, “How did I wind up on this guy’s blog?”

Myspace has had its time in the sun for me. I’ve had some comments from people who would like to post responses to my musings, but are unable to as they don’t wish to have an account on Myspace. (Personally, I’ve just grown tired of the spam I get from Myspace…)

So here I am, in my new home, in the wide-world of Blogger. A part of me feels that this is right: this seems to be a time when I’m reinventing who I am. At first I was scared by it, but now I’m excited of what the next few months hold. (What the cryptic-heck am I talking about?)

Do stay tuned as events unfold that shape and transform my life. The last time I had one of these moments, I moved from Winnipeg to Vancouver and completely reinvented who I am. (That wasn’t so much an active choice as it was a natural progression of crazy – yet cool – events.) This summer season has that same promise!
