Welcome This site has been neglected for some time and will now be gradually re-awakened. I am currently on a study leave and will be retiring from the University of Victoria as of july 1 2016. In September, 2015 I became Artistic Director of the Planet Earth Poetry reading series, now in its 20th year of regular Friday night readings. It is an honour to have been entrusted with this role. http://planetearthpoetry.com

terrains was published by Ekstasis Editions in 2014 and is available from the publisher or me. This book is about inner and outer landscapes and journeys in them.
In 2015 I released a limited edition chapbook interrupted (Goldfinch Press) that is dedicated to Doreen Visser Kwak and explores two cancer journeys, mine and hers. It is also available through me.
Ekstasis Editions has now released my newest collection of poems gnarled loveabout love in all its complexity, challenges and beauty touching on friendships, lovers, families and life long relationships.
There will also be a new chapbook later in the year - title Street Signs - a departure for me and a little more lighthearted fun inspired by a moment of reading a street sign while biking and thinking that sign was a comment on life.
