Exciting news! My essay “Skin Deep” has been shortlisted for the 2013 Alberta Literary Awards James H. Gray prize for short non-fiction. It’s a thrill and an honour to have my piece listed alongside work by the peripatetic Marcello di Cintio and the writer/rapper Omar Mouallem.

My essay – an early version of the first chapter of my nonfiction manuscript, Under the Skin – was published in FreeFall magazine (Fall 2012). You can read “Skin Deep” here.

If you happen to be in Calgary on April 23, join me and other short-listed Calgary authors for a reading at 7 p.m. at the Rose & Crown (1503 – 4th Street SW).
