After 20 dates, I wrapped up the Tender in the Age of Fury Tour. I’d like to thank all the curators who booked me and showed an interest in my work and everyone who made it out. It was a life changing journey. Highlights include reading at Au Chat Noir and La Roche D’Hys in France; Frogs and Jays in London; and in front of standing room only crowds at Hot Sauced Words, Cafe Zippy, Act, the Wedgwood, and the beautiful auditorium at the Palmerston Library. I also had the honor of being one of the features at the last regular night of the Art Bar, Canada’s most prestigious and longest running poetry only reading series.

Over the course of the tour, Tender in the Age of Fury sold out its first pressing and is now well into its second. I’d like to personally thank everyone who bought a copy. I hope you are digging it.

Though I am slowing down to focus on writing, I am planning a summer tour across Canada in 2017 and some dates in Europe.

I am currently working on a poetry collection called, “In the Company of Crows,” to be published by Mosaic Press and I am working on a third novel. My second novel, “The Gospel of Now” is finished and the manuscript is with the publisher. I hope to release another book in the Fall of 2017.
