Nowick Gray writes fiction and creative nonfiction, crossing genre boundaries and bending categories. Ordinary characters face extraordinary challenges on the margins of society--navigating illusions to find core survival, identity, purpose, meaning. Edgy narratives explore the borders of imagination and reality, choice and manifestation, freedom and structure, nature and civilization, desire and limitation. Nowick makes his home on Salt Spring Island, BC and works as a freelance copyeditor. When not engaged with words, he enjoys hiking, kayaking, and playing African drums.
