Writing From the Right Side of the Stall

Carefully curated musings about the writing life, horses, bitterness and crushing career disappointment. Fun, right?


This is a sampling of some of the feature articles I’ve had published in print, and on-line, over the years.  These aren’t necessarily my favourites, the ones which have won awards, or even the most contentious examples of my work … they’re just the ones for which I happen to have PDFs.

Nonetheless, I hope they give you some small idea of my background and writing style.

Please note that I hold the copyright for all of this material!  That means no pinching it for your own website/blog without my express, prior permission (and fair payment).  Thank you.
