A little intro. I write detective fiction, which I call North Noir, aka Canuck Noir. You know what I say? “Leave your Scandinavian Noir in the sauna. It’s time for North Noir.”
On the bio side, I grew up in Canada and the USA (Nova Scotia and Boston). I’ve traveled the world, working dozens of jobs. Like any good detective, I know both sides of the thin blue line. I’ve used numerous aliases (for non-nefarious purposes, of course). You’ll have to take my word on that.
Kudos for Bay of Blood: “A vivid page-turner” ~ Steven Heighton, Governor General’s Award Winner | “Quintessential Canadian mystery” ~ Lesley Choyce, Dartmouth Book Award Winner
Keep coming back. I’ll be posting blogs about writing detective fiction as well as fiction in general. I’ll post book reviews. I’ll keep you up-to-date on the progress of my North Noir novels, featuring Detective Sergeant Eva Naslund. The novels follow prescribed narrative conventions, such as the inclusion of forensic detail, yet the prose isn’t formulaic. It’s as important as the plot. Welcome!
Don’t strive to write literary fiction, write damned good fiction. Anonymous
