Writer Bio

Former oceanographic researcher, living in the old city of Quebec.

Writing Style

I write comics, historical, and just generally every kind of fiction, lots of it influenced by my background as a scientist. I write to capture the strange beauty of the world, and to understand what makes people tick.

Writing Goal

I'm working through the third round of revisions on my historical novel about an expedition to the Arctic. My goal is to get this finished—so that I can go on to fourth revisions and maybe even querying later this summer. Revising is hard to quantify, but I'll commit to spending at least four hours a day.

Fundraising Goal


writing goal:
120 hours on editing
