An isolated homestead in northern Canada, with no phones, no power and no school except by mail. During warm weather I worked outside with machinery or animals and wandered the wilderness on my own. During the long, cold winters, I developed a passion for books.
Where I’ve worked
Many places, from rep theater in San Francisco to accounting on Vancouver Island.
What I like
Books, learning, books, research, books, cats, books, and food. And oh, did I mention books? Favorite science: geology.
What I don’t like
Marketing, traveling, television, noise, anchovies.
What I write
Humor (about cats), science fiction, wild and tame, mainstream novels and short stories. So far I’ve completed 21 books, ditched 4, published 17. I’ve been writing fiction for 30 years.
Where I’m going
Who knows? The world has infinite possibilities.
Sneaky Pete. Apparently my plots kinda sneak up on you!
