Welcome! I am a writer and artist living on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. I write speculative fiction, essays and articles. I also make mosaics and dabble in oils, acrylics, and mixed media.
My woodland home sits beside a ‘holler’ at the foot of the Cape Breton Highlands, so I call this place Highland Holler. (And when you holler the highlands echo right back atcha!) Every season here brings its own delights and challenges. I share some of my thoughts and observations, gleaned from life here in the holler, on my blog.
My short story The Stone Mound appears in the first edition of
‘Magine: Unama’ki / Cape Breton’s Literary Magazine
Issue #1 March 2022, James Thompson, ed.
Twenty years ago my dog Tundra and I saw drift ice for the first time. This photo gallery of drift ice over the years features dogs, seals, monsters, mushrooms, spaceships, and stunningly beautiful bergs.
