My previous online publications include two short stories, “Of Smelly Toilets and Wet Cheese” and “Triage”. Another story, “The Pythagorean Theorem” was short-listed for the 2006 CBC Literary Awards and The Writers’ Union of Canada 2010 Short Prose Competition for Developing Writers. “The Perseids” also made this short list.
My current obsessions include Motorhead, the experiences of frontline soldiers during the First World War, and the pathological psychology of Ajax Quire. Quire is the hero of another (soon-to-be-published) Macchiusi novel, Lurking in Plain Sight. I am currently at work on the The Prion File, which is the second of the Quire thrillers; and The Betelgeuse Shaman, the second book of the Betelgeuse Chronicles.
