Tagline
I am a senior writer and columnist with the Ottawa Citizen.
Introduction
I am a senior writer with the Ottawa Citizen, and hold an adjunct professorship at Carleton University. I have published three books, Northern Spirits, a study of Canadian political thought, and A Rumour of God, a collection of essays on "everyday mysticism," and "The Way of the Stars," an account of a pilgrimage trek on the Camino de Santiago. Another pilgrimage book, The Way of the 88 Temples, recounting my walk on the Japanese island of Shikoku will be published August, 2013.
Bragging rights
I have won several awards for my writing, including from the American Academy of Religion, the Religion Newswriters Association, the Canadian Association of Journalism, the North American Travel Journalists Association, and the Society of American Travel Writers.
