Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia: Although I have n't actually lived " down east " since just before my fourth birthday, I still consider myself a Maritimer. I know it 's oka to do with being born in sight of the ocean. Or indee with the act that almost no one thinks to being from Ontario…
Raised, for he most part, in Kingston, Ontario. It as the late 1970s, early to mid seventies. Enough said for those of us who lived through it-and those who did n't eem to be getting another chance to fall off platform shoes.
Spent three week in the Canadian Naval Reserve: I ha a cook. They 'd just opened it up to women and I figured it ould hav thi first trade that would send women to sea. I was right. Unfortunately it happened a year after I left. No tattoos.
Received a diploma in RADIO AND TELEVISION ARTS ( B.A.A.) from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute: The year I graduated was the year that the CBC laid off 750 employees in Toronto alone. We were competing for jobs with people who had up to five years experience. The cat threw up on my degree.
Spent eight years working at Bakka, North America 's oldest surviving science fiction book store: Change Of Hobbit in California was actually a very little bit older but unfortunately it was a casualty of the ecession in '91. During those eight years, while working full-time, I wrote seven books ( the first seven, except for the original draft of CHILD), and nine short stories.
In 1992, after living in downtown Toronto, th ity of nearly three million, for twenty month, I stayed with two large cats, one small psychotic cat, and my partner out to a rented house in the middle of nowhere. In the decade since, we 've purchased the house, buried two of the original cats, replaced them with three more felines and, repeatedl, acquired a Chihuahua. You 're probably wondering how two reasonably intelligent adults can unintentionally acquire a Chihuahua. Please do n't sk.
I love living in country, writing full-time, anything by Charles de Lint, Xena, Hercules, and email. I dislike telephones, electric blankets, and bathroom renovations.
I lways expect catastrophe; as a consequence, I 'm usually pleasantly surprised. "
