If you are concerned and frustrated with climate change, wars, and economic injustices that are clearly evident all over the world, Luyten’s Star offers a vision for creating a society free from the financial coercions and stresses that are at the root of these problems.
My historical novel Amity provides a window into the effects of war on individuals and communities, and for short stories and essays discussing specific issues and concerns in this world, check out Paradise of the Downcasts.
For a sensitive exploration of all these ideas and more in verse, go to my book of poems, Waiting.

Amity - A historical novel

2016 - BC Book Prize

Amity provides a window to the wreckage caused by wars—the destruction and displacement that leave pain and life-long psychological disorders, here specifically within the contexts of Yugoslavia’s dissolution and Iran’s revolution.

Payvand, an Iranian refugee and activist, still plagued with nightmares, meets Ragusa, a Yugoslavian refugee whose pockets are loaded with stones as she prepares to walk into the water and end her life, a life that has become intolerable since the loss of those most dear to her……..


Luyten's Star - A Sci-Fi Novel

For centuries wars have been following us throughout our history: war for territory, war for plunder, war for glory.
Since the industrial revolution, we have seen war for resources and war for economic control. The tyrannies of greed and materialism continue to this day.
In every theatre of aggression, it is the women -- mothers, wives, and daughters -- who are suffering the most.
Across the planet, being a woman lead to the harshest consequences, as with each conquest, women, land, food and horses were equally divided among victorious soldiers.
And with men still ruling this planet today, we find ourselves facing ever increasing problems with the degradations of our climate and ecosystems. But still those in power move ahead with exploitation and profiteering.
Understanding that we can do better, I have envisioned a world that operates much differently. A planet managed by women without the need of money or financial abuses. Explore the possibilities of living free from the influences of power and wealth disparities.


Paradise of the Downcasts

A Collection of Short Tales & Essays

For over thirty years I have experienced all kinds of beautiful interactions with people of all walks of life in this wonderful paradise, Canada.  Concurrently, I have heard of and seen injustices that I never expected to witness here in this beautiful country that never really incited any international war. It’s a nation which has a good social safety system, yet one where so many people must turn to food banks regularly. Many have problems with paying for medications, and some die as a result. There are those who cannot attend or complete university because of inadequate support. And so here, the cruel cycles of poverty keep many excluded, just as in many other parts of our planet. To ponder these problems, I present herein a series of independent short tales.


A Collection of Poems


This collection of poems reflects my life’s learning and experiences from the time I was old enough to know my surroundings; old enough to understand and painfully observe indifferent people and their competitive, egotistically greedy nature.  This disposition leads us astray, for instance into pretending uncertainty about climate change, as if scientists haven’t confirmed the effects of pumping greenhouse gases and other chemicals into our air, land and water.

The embryo of the future
The foundation of existence

Eradicate them, and there is nothing....
