Rough ghosts. We all have them. They live inside us. They haunt us. We are our ghosts.
This ghost is the writer that haunts me. Like an angel on the shoulder speaking in my ear, urging me to write. Outside of that I am many other ghosts: a reader, a critic, an editor, an amateur photographer, and the queered parent of grown children.
I have many areas of interest/concern including:
- literature, in English and in translation
- innovative/experimental literary forms
- sexuality and gender diversity
- mental health and wellness
I live in western Canada. I want say my ghost is grounded here, but lately I am restless.
