So I realize there’s been some radio silence on my end in the last few months, but that’s only because there’s been a lot going on. Although I wish I had the time to make an individual post for every update, unfortunately I have to group a few really cool things into one post.
As some of you may know, I recently purchased Sanitarium Magazine with Ian Sputnik, Brooke Warra, and Michael Brueggeman. We’re doing some really cool things with it—like expanding its offerings and changing its look—and I’m really excited for you all to see what kind of changes and updates we make to this publication. Unfortunately I can’t talk too much about what we’re doing, but I promise it’s going to be good. It’s beloved by so many indie horror authors, and gave so many people (like me!) their start in horror, so I really hope we can do it justice.
I was also published in a new anthology! It’s called Beyond Steampunk and features my short story “Highway 16,” which was previously published in 2016. If you get a kick out of supporting local authors—or if you just enjoy reading alternative histories—then be sure to pick up a copy.
Lastly, if you’re not doing anything this May, and happen to be in the Ottawa area, why not come down to the 2018 Ottawa Comiccon? I’ll be giving a workshop on body diversity, and how to make media more inclusive for everyone. The schedule for the convention hasn’t been released yet, but I promise to update the Courses, Workshops, and Panels page once I get all the details.
And that should be all the updates.
At least for now.
If you happen to be in the Montreal area and have nothing to do on Sunday, come by Chapters Pointe-Claire and grab a signed copy of my coauthored collection Read-Only: A Collection of Digital Horror. I’ll be there to talk about the book (written in collaboration with the talented M. Regan), to talk about Caribou Chronicles (a serialized online rural fantasy co-written by myself and the wonderful Kris Holt), and some really cool projects coming up in 2018.
The signing is going to be this Sunday, November 12th, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and it should be great fun.
Hope to see you all there!
Thank you to everyone who attended the 2017 Montreal Comiccon and came out to attend both my workshops. It means the world to me that so many of you showed up to discuss pop culture, inclusivity, and media creation this past weekend.

I’m happy to announce that my first coauthored short horror collection with M. Regan entitled Read-Only: A Collection of Digital Horror is finally out!
The book features fourteen never before seen short stories that reveal the insidious side of high-tech toys. This collection can’t be unread, and once you learn the truth about what’s lurking behind your mobile screens, camera lenses, and newsfeeds, you can never forget.
Be sure to pick up a copy today, which you can find over here at the WMP website.
Hey guys! Sorry for the delay in updating this site, it’s been a crazy year and I haven’t had a chance to let you guys in on all the cool news.
Firstly, I want to thank everyone who attended my workshops at the 2016 Toronto Fan Expo. It was great getting to meet you all, and I hope to see you guys there next year. I’d also like to thank the convention for having me; it was such a wonderful expo and I can’t wait to see what’s there in 2017. Continue reading “Overdue Thanks To Fan Expo And Some Exciting Updates”
Wow… it’s been way too long since I’ve updated here. Sorry folks!
So far 2016 has been a crazy year, and it looks like it’s just going to get crazier as time goes on, so now’s as good a time to update everyone as ever. Continue reading “Heeere’s Johnny… Well, Sort Of”
It’s been painfully long since I update this blog, and while it sucks that I’ve been MIA for almost two months I am happy to announce that it’s because I’ve been busy with some projects that I’m super excited about. Continue reading “An Overdue Update And Some News”
What was I thinking deciding to participate in NaNoWriMo?
What. Was. I. Thinking?
The skin on the tips of my fingers is practically all gone, rubbed away from hours spent typing at my computer. My posture has suffered more than I want to admit… it was perfect in September, outstanding in October, and it’s reached Quasimodo levels of bad now in November. And maybe it’s just me, but I never thought I would hate the sound of someone typing on a keyboard as much as I currently do. But, on the upside, my novel is well underway. Continue reading “NaNoWriMo Wrap-Up”
If you haven’t heard the news, which is very possible given how slow I am at announcing things, I’m happy to say that a story of mine is going to be featured in an upcoming anthology called The Women In Horror Annual. The anthology is a collection of short horror, and nonfiction about horror, exclusively written by women who work in the genre. The project is being spearheaded by Rachel Katz and Christine Makepeace, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of it. Continue reading “The Women In Horror Annual”
So it’s been well over a month since my last post to this website… which is horrible. But, on the plus side, I’m posting something now. So that’s good, right? Maybe? We’ll come back to that later.
It’s been a crazy couple of months and I’m beyond excited to announce that I have a few really exciting projects coming out next year. I’ll be appearing in a few anthologies, the names of which I’m unable to announce just yet, and I’ll also be on an upcoming episode of Pseudopod (which, in case you’re not familiar with it, is an incredible horror podcast). I’m also thrilled to announce that I’ll be co-editing an anthology with both the talented Kris Holt and Mark Nixon, the creator of Shadows At The Door, which is slated to come out later next year. If you’re not familiar with his phenomenal website then you definitely need to go check it out this second. Seriously. Continue reading “A Long Overdue Update (Or Two)”
