Magic is where you find it, on the water, in the garden, in a book. "

Welcome! Thanks for dropping by. 
I am a Canadian writer of poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction. I’ve published seven books, including poetry, memoir, and magic realism novel and had work published in over forty anthologies.

I’ve edited one anthology of poetry, co-edited an anthology of creative non-fiction and had poems, articles, reviews, and short fiction published in so many magazines my bibliography runs to 22 pages.

The important thing with magic is to make it happen!
