About Me
hello, I'm originally from England and have lived in Vancouver, Canada for many years. I also spend a lot of time in the UK. I attended University of British Columbia, and have since taught there and at Simon Fraser University. I'm a writer, primary of poetry, and have published five books, most recently "Rail", with McGill Queen's University Press. I teach both within the academy and privately. I edit and review poetry. I also practice various other art forms - weaving, painting, pottery.
