I have worked as a teacher, journalist, school bus driver, psychotherapist, hotel night clerk, counsellor, building superintendent, free-lance writer and janitor. Born and educated in Ohio, I completed courses for an M.A. in English literature. I have lived much of my adult life in Ontario and British Columbia. I've written five unpublished novels, a hundred stories and plays, and two thousand poems and light verse. I now reside with my partner, Fran Thoburn, in Victoria, British Columbia.
