The Projects

I am a travel writer and photographer. This blog began during my 2010 road trip across Canada, and I will continue to use it to chronicle my adventures.

The Blog
I don’t generally have the budget for leisurely trips. I like to see everything when I travel, or as much as I can, so as much as I try to update the blog while on the road, this isn’t always possible. I’m usually behind. But I’ll do my best to post while I travel and then write more complete updates when I get home.

The Thesis
I’m completing a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing, and my thesis is a travel narrative, tentatively titled Ferry Tales. It’s the story of my trip across Canada and includes autobiographical elements as well as historical and geographical information. It’s still a work in progress, but I hope to finish it by December 2011.

The Book
After the book is completed and the degree is earned, I will begin actively pursuing publication. If you or a publisher you know is interested in this project in the meantime, though, I would welcome any inquiries.

The Future
One of the greatest joys of travel is that the journey never truly ends. I am sure that the Canadian Road Trip will affect my writing for years to come. I’ve also used the photographs in photo books and calendars, and I’ve thought about writing a children’s book, too.

And of course, I can’t ever sit still. So even before I’ve finished my Canadian book, I’m off on my next adventure. In summer 2011, I will spend a month in the United Kingdom and France. After two weeks of class in London, I will stay for two weeks, exploring northern France and bits of Scotland and Wales with my mom. It’s an exploration of our heritage, and I hope that my second book is in there somewhere!
