I write about the people and landscape where I live.
I have a drive and a passion to write. And to read.
Once upon a time, I became an English teacher. So that I could read and write full time.
I wrote poems and stories and essays – most of which I shared with the world.
I taught my students to write poems and stories and essays, and encouraged them to share with the world.
And I wrote and I published newsletters – scads of them. For any organization I could.
I published a little magazine for 10 years – The Squatchberry Journal.
I immersed myself in local history, and wrote scads of articles and several books.
Now I’ve written my first novel – it has been published on Smashwords.
The novel, The Beardmore Relics, grows out of the people and landscape where I live.
The e-book can be sampled for free, or purchased at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/48856
There is now a trade paperback of The Beardmore Relics. Check your favourite bookseller, whether it be Chapters or Barnes & Noble or Amazon.com.
I live in the Greenstone region, north of Lake Superior, in the hinterland of the City of Thunder Bay.
I am retired from teaching. Olga and I live in a big cabin in the woods on the shore of a big lake.
