Welcome This site has been neglected for some time and will now be gradually re-awakened. I retired from the University of Victoria July 1 2016. In September, 2015 I became Artistic Director of the Planet Earth Poetry reading series in Victoria BC. We have started , our 22nd season of regular Friday night readings at Hillside Coffee & Tea. It is an honour to have been entrusted with this role.

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 from me.
Ekstasis Editions has also released my latest collection of poems gnarled love (2016) about love in all its complexity, challenges and beauty touching on friendships, lovers, families and life long relationships.
There is also a new chapbook entitled Street Signs (Goldfinch Press). It isa departure for me and a little more lighthearted fun inspired by a moment of reading a street sign while cycling and thinking that sign was a comment on life.
