I am a writer, editor and the inaugural director of the first taught creative writing MA in Singapore and Southeast Asia.
In 2003, my first book of fiction was named to The Globe and Mail‘s Top 100 Books of 2003. That book, the story collection A Sharp Tooth in the Fur, received rave reviews from coast to coast. My debut novel, a bicycle odyssey, rolled out in 2008. Look for The Push & the Pull wherever fine books are sold. On Earth Day 2012, I released Origins, a book of poems devoted to evolution, energy and extinction as they have been, can be and/or should be viewed at Joggins, Nova Scotia. My latest novel, Keeping Things Whole, is a multi-generational smuggling epic of love and death.
I have appeared at writing festivals and/or universities in Bali, Malaysia, Iceland, Australia, Sweden, Wales, Canada, Singapore and the US.
