Have a read of my interview with Emily Updegraff at Great Lakes Review. What a beautiful, insightful review!
Myshort story collection, "A Perfect Day to Die" (Guerinica World Editions) will be released on September 1st!!
widower meets a man who can change the weather. A middle-aged woman
attempts to freeze to death. A young man attempts to starve to death. A
young woman navigates in a foreign city, constructing a new identity. A
dancer is forced to accept a ride home from a bar comedian. A divorcee
meets an elderly Japanese woman... From the sombre offices of Tokyo to the
ESL classrooms of Toronto, see how they find their own therapeutic ways
to reconcile with their loss, agony, and despair.

The first ever translation of my short story came from Brazil! This one’s “The Summer with No Mosquitoes” (Great Lakes Review, 2018). Two more stories from my collection, A Perfect Day to Die (Guernica Editions, 2022) will follow: “The Comedian” (Flash Fiction Online, 2018) and “St. Clair West” (untethered, 2016). Thanks to translator Patricia Lattavo; you can read her work on BiblioTechie App.
I’m so excited to finally be able to announce that my short story collection, The World Through Your Eyes (working title), which was a 2019 finalist for Eyelands Book Awards in Greece, will be published by Guernica World Editions in 2022. This is exactly what I need to sustain me through this dark period: HOPE! Hoping to come to Canada next year if the world gets back to normal by then. So, get out of my way, COVID!
