Screenwriter, Novelist


A selection of recent Q&As:



I'm absolutely thrilled to be selected as February's #1 Indie Next Pick by the American Booksellers Association. Here's a Q&A I did for

I did this Q&A for the Penguin Random House UK website. I discuss many things, including guilty pleasures, writing advice, and a rather convoluted definition of time.

Here's a pre-publication interview I did with the book trade website SHELF AWARENESS.

GOODREADS quizzed me with a lot of smart questions for their Debut Author Snapshot series.

The QWILLERY asked me lots of interesting questions for their 2017 Debut Author Challenge and introduced me to the enjoyable terms "plotter" and "pantser".

I did my undergrad at Queen's University and did this Q&A with the Alumni Review for their issue on futurism.

A joint interview that I did with Claire Cameron, author THE BEAR and THE LAST NEANDERTHAL, for the Hamilton Review of Books.

I did this Q&A for FLAVORWIRE as part of their "The Sweetest Debut" series. Warning: it involves weird Spiderman fanfic. Sorry.

The Globe & Mail ran this Q&A with me. We discussed the best advice I ever got, what book I'd give aliens to explain humanity, whether I prefer beginnings or endings, and various other topics.

This was a fun Q&A I did for PURE FANDOM that digs into some of the geeky aspects of the book and my even geekier genre influences.

For some reason I spent like half of this interview with 49th Shelf talking about rocket engineering, which gives you an idea of what it's like to hang out with me.

BOOKPAGE asked me about time-travel pet peeves, finding the book's narrative voice, and the state of the novel in a techno-utopian alternate reality.

I did this Q&A with Paul Semel about social commentary in science-fiction and my influences as a writer.
