In 2015 I published The Finch Trilogy — Bone Maker, Stone Eater, and Lone Hunter — three novels narrated from the point-of-view of a crime reporter in San Francisco. Second Life (2017) is the first in a series of stand-alone books that follows the characters established in the trilogy. The series prequel, Five Knives, came out in 2018.
My first novel, Fire Eyes, was optioned for film. My second novel, Healing the Dead, was translated into German as Todliche Ahnungen. The Good Lie, another psychological thriller, was recorded as an audiobook. A fourth novel, Exit from America, made its debut as an e-book in 2013.
Following my birth in Montreal, my family moved around North America from rural Ontario to New York City to McComb, Mississippi to Cape May, New Jersey. I finally landed on my feet on Vancouver Island — where I live next to the Salish Sea in the city of Victoria.
