WHAT AM I PASSIONATE ABOUT? LET ME - URGLE BLURGLE - TELL YOU! I'M PASSIONATE ABOU - ARRR GRRR BLARGH!

Umm, maybe I should dial back the passion a bit. Yeah. Dialing it back is probably good idea.

When I was eight years old, I decided to devote my life to writing humour, in all of its forms in as many media as I could find. I did it intermittently through my adolescence (humour writers don't have childhoods), and have been doing it steadily since 1984, when I created the first iteration of Les Pages aux Folles. My main passion is making people laugh. (It is this passion that brings me to Eastercon for the launch of my first novel: Welcome to the Multiverse - Sorry for the Inconvenience.)

In a different life (still in this universe, though - don't want anybody thinking I write non-fiction), I have a Masters in Media Studies (my thesis adviser was Paul Levinson) and a PhD in Communications. You could also say that I have a passion for ideas, which is also evident in my writing.

Oh, and I like butter tarts. It's not exactly a passion, but, with Passover approaching, I'm obsessing a bit about food...
