The Longer Bio

Dave writes speculative fiction of varying genres and lengths.  In 2011, his novel, The Platinum Ticket was shortlisted for the Terry Pratchett Prize.  Dave co-hosts a local cable TV show called Turning Pages, an in-depth interview show that highlights authors, writing and publishing.

He lives in Fergus, Ontario with his wife, two children, three chickens and a pond full of feral goldfish.
