Another Clockwork Canada Interview

Kevin Steil over at Airship Ambassador was kind enough to interview me about Clockwork Canada (my process, my goals with the anthology, some notes about stories), my writing, my other editorial projects, and he included other questions about craft, inspiration, and my favourite type of sandwich! It certainly was a thorough interview. You can find it here:

In addition, Kevin will be interviewing all the Clockwork Canada contributors. He’s already posted the interview with Charlotte Ashley here, here, and here. Other contributors will follow shortly.

This weekend is the Ad Astra literary conference in Markham/Richmond Hill/Toronto North (the exact location depends on who you ask, heh) taking place at the Sheraton Parkway North. I’ll be on a few panels, and Clockwork Canada will have a launch party!

Short Story News

Clockwork Canada is gearing up for publication, and some new interviews and reviews are just around the corner. I’ll be posting about them soon. In the meantime, here’s something about my own writing!

The table of contents for “Those Who Make Us: Canadian Creature, Myths, and Monsters” edited by Kelsi Morris and Kaitlin Tremblay was announced today. It includes my story “Where Roots and Rivers Run as Veins”, a magic realist tale set in 1840s Peterborough.

I’ll be sharing a ToC with some very fine writers like Corey Redekop, Helen Marshall, Rati Mehrotra, Kate Story, and many others. Very exciting!

Here’s the link to the ToC.




Clockwork Canada Interview

The wonderful Derek Künsken was kind enough to interview me about the Clockwork Canada over at Black Gate (the same place that hosted the official cover reveal for the anthology!). Derek had some great questions. I was able to gush about a few of the stories, and give some context for the project as a whole.

You can find the interview here.
