I’m the author of six books, three of which have been translated. My latest book, Deep Salt Water, is surrealistic memoir about loss, abortion, and the oceans; my previous work of non-fiction, Voluptuous Pleasure: The Truth about the Writing Life, was listed among the ‘Top 100 Books of 2012’ by Toronto’s Globe & Mail. I’m a recipient of the Chalmers Arts Fellowship, and a nominee for the 2017 K.M. Hunter Award.
