I am a former newspaper and magazine journalist who now works as a novelist and photographer. I am the author of the novels Snapped (North America: 2010; UK: 2011) and Every Little Thing (February 2011), and the non-fiction book, Spree: A Cultural History of Shopping (2003). I have recently finished a draft of my newest work, The Mod Girls. I also write My Analogue Life, a weekly column that appears in the Analogue Lifestyle section of Lomography Magazine.

My dreamy, vintage-inspired photographs are shot exclusively with analogue cameras using expired and/or damaged film. My work has appeared in art publications and advertisements around the globe and prints of my work reside in private collections worldwide. I am currently working on three new series: a photo-adaptation of the classic fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood, a magazine and multi-media project called Gingham, and an ambitious series that incorporates digital video, called The Private Lives of Public Creatures.

I am also the founder and chief curator of the Secret Society of Analogue Art, an organization that encourages the creative fusion of analogue and digital communication and media by offering an ongoing series of participatory art projects.

I live in Calgary, Canada with my daughter and my fiancé, philosopher Gillman Payette.
