I am a writer living in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I write mainly fantasy literature, with a particular interest in historical fantasy. I also have a thing for poetry, drawing, and painting. Welcome to my blog! On the Vinciolo Journal, you can expect to read many posts on diverse topics, including book reviews, historical snippets, opinion pieces, and poetry or excerpts from my novels and short stories.


The novel I am presently working on is called Intelligence, set in Elizabethan England. Intelligence is a double–even triple–pun: it refers to the intellect, espionage reports, and the spirits that move planets in the old conception universe.
