I’m a writer. Of fiction mostly. Five novels so far, a sixth and a sequel about to come out. What kind of fiction? It’s ironic, multi-layered, circular rather than linear, laced with ambiguities and fraught with paradoxes. It has been called metafiction.

All I can say for sure is that my writing is funny, gets rave reviews, attracts hardcore addicts, and scares the hell out of publishers and most editors. But not all, I hope.

In July 2018, I read to a great audience at the Ben McNally Books (Toronto) launch for The NeverMind of Brian Hildebrand.

I was genuinely honoured to be included in the 2019 Leacock Medal for Humour longlist. Check out the impressive reading list (photo: Leacock Medal) :

For serious literary criticism of my work, see the thoughts of Dennis Duffy and Donald Cameron. These are longer reads with many insights. Authors don’t always know what they’ve written.
