The Encyclopedia of British Columbia was a massive project, edited by Daniel Francis and published by Harbour in 2000. I served as one of two contributing editors for the Encyclopedia and was also the Places subject consultant and wrote more than 630 individual entries.


I’ve edited several non-fiction books for Harbour Publishing, a company based here on the Sunshine Coast. These include Westcoasters: Boats That Built BC, by Tom Henry (1998, winner of the Bill Duthie Booksellers’ Choice BC Book Prize); High Boats: A Century of Salmon Remembered, by Pat Wastell Norris (2003, finalist for the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction BC Book Prize); and Easykayaking Basics: A Paddling Handbook for the Pacific Northwest, by Gary Backlund and Paul Grey (2004).
