I am a former journalist, specialist book editor, author of wilderness thriller Poison Bay, and the owner of Small Blue Dog Publishing.

As the publishing industry goes through its biggest revolution since the printing press, I work among trade publishers, independent publishers, and self-publishers.

I am a published author of meditations, a Silver IPPY medalist and a Varuna Fellowship winner for fiction, and, in the ‘spare time’ around my day-and-night job, I'm currently working on self-publishing several books of my own.

I love gorgeous wild places, animals and spiritual truth.
