After an accidental debut as a professional tarot reader in 2009, Oliver Pickle began doing tarot readings regularly, at bars and in parks and on balconies. At the request of a good friend, Oliver began writing about the Thea's Tarot deck--a process that was at once prolonged and fruitful. Oliver is, more generally, a Montreal-based, trans- identified writer, publisher, and editor. Their work has appeared in Lambda Award-winning The Collection: Short Fiction from the Transgender Vanguard (Topside Press, 2012) and make/shift magazine, among other publications. Oliver released Gays in the Workplace in 2011 and is currently working on a book of short stories.
