I always wanted to be a writer. I travel a lot – more than 70 countries across six continents, to date. My novel DARK PLACES won Canada’s Arthur Ellis Award, and has been translated into Dutch, German, and Japanese; my recent Vertigo Crime graphic novel THE EXECUTOR was nominated for a Spinetingler Award, appeared on several best-of-the-year-lists, and has been translated into Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese. My most recent book, and I think my favorite, is my “children’s book for grown-ups” BEASTS OF NEW YORK. I’m not so secretly planning to write a sequel or two. I write novels, scripts, magazine journalism, a weekly column for the irreverent tech site TechCrunch, and software. It is fair to say that I am easily bored.
