The first story I ever wrote was one of redemption and plagiarism - an illustrated tale about Care Bear spokesperson Tenderheart Beartm teaching a grumpy black bear how to love.
So, it had a happy ending.
Many years later at Toronto's York University, I earned my Honours BA in Fine Arts Cultural Studies (I use the term "earned" loosely, considering the essays on my friends and the self-designed course on comic books). After graduation, I hung around to attend Osgoode Hall Law School. However I quickly realized the study of law was teaching me how NOT to love and I promptly ran away.
So, this too had a happy ending.
So now I live on the edge of Toronto with Steve, a sweetheart of an actor/writer/drawer-of-awesome things (read his short stories in Futuredaze: An Anthology of YA Science Fiction and These Vampires Don't Sparkle).
We also share our home with three cats. Gadget is our food-obsessed, tuxedo-clad senior-with-seniority...
Youngsters Charlotte and Rubin are gentle and goofy littermates who just happen to have cerebellar hypoplasia (aka CH aka Wobbly Cat Syndrome).

Stuff I Like
When I'm not writing or otherwise fiddling about on the computer with a cat on my lap, I'm usually enjoying some good books, TV shows or movies; out birdwatching and practicing my mediocre nature photography skills; messing about with puppets, or at my part-time doggie daycare job with a puppy on my lap.
