While I write my first Neil Flambé mystery I'm doing character sketches of the main characters. That's Angel Jicama, a chef who quit the crazy restaurant business to simplify his life and his food.

Every year I freeze a rink in my backyard. My friend Anna (originally from Trinidad) made her first trip on frozen water in 20+ years!
Our mutual friend Jack and I gave her a helping hand or two.
You can also see a glimpse of the "playoff beard" I'm sporting while I write my book.

I'm working on an article on bike snobbery for the Toronto cycling magazine dandyhorse

I'm a believer that cycling should be egalitarian but I find that tribalism seeps into the two-wheeled world as much as anywhere else. Still, I have prepared one Utopian vision of cycling freedom and I'll share it with you.

Keep cycling!
