Yes! It’s true! And I almost can’t believe it myself, but I am a 2018 Aurora Award Nominee.

The Aurora Awards are the major speculative fiction awards here in Canada, and I am sharing the ballot with so many fine writers. It is all an absolute dream come true.

I was nominated for my 2017 poem “Meat Puppets,” which came out in issue #4 of Polar Borealis and is on page 76. It’s also the first poem I ever sold.
