Robert Boyczuk (that’s me!) lives in Toronto. In former lives I was a technical writer for IBM and then a Professor at Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology, where I taught programming, IT security and the occasional English course. I’ve attended far too many workshops and courses in creative writing, including the Humber School for Writers, Second City workshops in script writing, and the Clarion West Workshop. Over the years, I’ve published four books and several short stories in various print and online magazines and anthologies. Often, I’m irritable for no apparent reason.

Find me on Facebook, Instragram, Twitter and Goodreads (sorry, on permanent hiatus from the first three and happier for it – or, at least, less irritable).
