(I am a bit silly as you can see)
Former Arts writer (music and film). I have a Journalism degree from Carleton and I write scripts and poems, and novels. However, I decided I was too old to be a starving writer anymore and joined the film technicians union IATSE and work in sets and props now. Proud homeowner.
I have an irrational fear of walruses as when I was a child I tugged on one's tusk and in revenge he hired some mafia goons who then roughed up my grandmother. Actually, make that a rational fear of walruses.
I have an irrational fear, however, of cottage cheese and the Kardashians.
I am getting into playing scrabble and kind of suck at it, but in future will excel and make this a platform for the above mentioned world domination. Also, I love nothing more than sitting by my recently made functional fireplace, staring at the fire being cozy while writing or reading.
Oh and I started running this year and love it.
I love coffee and red wine and patios and long walks, and rain, and sun, cats, film, books, music.
For some reason I am drawn to rivers. I like travel, but have not really traveled in a few years. I miss it. My favourite places I have visited include China, England, Egypt, Paris, Dublin, Amsterdam, NYC, California..... I like Kensington market and the Junction. Also, I like to cook. No recipes are allowed! It's fun that way, and usually ends up tasty.
I have a blog for my fiction and poetry.
