2008 Finalist

RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers

for When in the Field with Her at His Back

Jury Citation

“‘When in the Field with Her at His Back’ begins with a man hearing the click of a landmine connecting beneath his foot. Told in flashback this story sustains a thoughtful suspense, never hurried, in the mind of one human being faced with his imminent end. The characterizations are impeccable. The story is gripping. The ending is unrehearsed. The whole package is sublime. An excellent short story worthy of immediate publication.” — 2008 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award Jury (Natalee Caple, Michelle Berry, and Andrew Pyper)
