How did your time in the Creative Writing Program influence your work?
My biggest influence was Bob Harlow, who, early on, encouraged me to focus on non-fiction. (I didn’t for a long time).
What’s your latest published/performed work?
The Bulldog and the Helix – DNA and the pursuit of justice in a frontier town
Is there anything else about your writing career you’d like to share?
I call it my “accidental” journalism career. I landed in the newsroom of the Alberni Valley Times in 1996 and found out what I should have been doing in the first place. Didn’t try to move up because I knew the newspaper business was going to hit some hard times.
