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, 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.

If you want to improve the way your organization tells its story and connects with its audience, we should talk. I am a trusted writer who has worked with government and private sector clients for more than 25 years helping them not only to inform the public about important social, cultural and economic issues – everything from global warming to cooking hamburgers safely – but also to influence and change audience behavior – encouraging kids to stay in school, for example, and grown-ups to know their history and visit museums. Articles placed in newspapers and on websites for these clients have documented readership in the hundreds of millions.

I take what you want to say and find the best, most persuasive way of saying it.
