I’m a freelance writer/broadcaster who specializes in literary journalism.

My articles and book reviews have appeared in, among other places, The Washington Post, The Toronto Globe and Mail, The Guardian, LOGOS, Canadian Bookseller magazine, CNQ magazine and Canadian Art magazine.

I host a popular podcast on books called The Biblio File ( ). Over the years I’ve had the privilege of interviewing some amazing authors: Alaa Al Aswany, Alice Notley, Nadeem Aslam, Margaret Atwood, Derek Walcott, Tim Winton, David Mitchell, Jane Urquhart, Ha Jin, Yann Martel, Amitav Ghosh, Junot Diaz, Larry McMurtry, Madeleine Thien, Tim Parks, BenoĆ®t Duteurtre, Adam Gopnik and Ivan Klima, and many others.

I also blog here, mostly about books, culture and travel. Here are some of my articles and book reviews.
