I was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, in the 20th century. I’ve also lived in St. John’s; Toronto; London, Ontario; Ottawa (in the past and currently); Boston; and Kingston, Ontario. I write, edit, watch movies and standup comedy, and hang out with friends whenever I get a chance. My career has been as a professional librarian, first as a serials cataloguer at the National Library of Canada starting in 1985, and lastly as University Librarian at Carleton University from 2015 to 2019.
