'‘I am a fiction writer.’ I say it as readily as ‘I’m an atheist’ or ‘I have blue eyes’. I say it and feel as though it’s set in stone, Great Pyramid-like. But then I realise: I’ve also written poetry. I’ve taken classes in it. Hell, I’ve even won a poetry prize or two. And so another truth emerges. Yes, I’ve had short fiction published. But also an equal amount of poetry and, as it turns out, nonfiction published. Curiously, the only things I’ve ever had published in Voiceworks
have been nonfiction pieces.'
