  • Richard Payment

  • Born: in Vancouver, Canada.

  • Description: I am a film studies librarian at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. I spend my days surrounded by films, screens and movie talk. Writing is another world.

    I have lived most of my life in western Canada, but I also stayed for a couple of years in London, my wife's hometown. We now have five children and are back in Canada.

    As a young man, I studied both film production and creative writing.
    Around the same time, I travelled extensively in the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as in India.

    Writing is a way of remembering all that. But more often, it is a way of imagining possible worlds.
