A Collection of Stories
Writing is fun. And I thank God for my continuing recovery from my stroke in 1999. He has a sense of humour, because I asked for time for my writing from the busy world of earning a living. Now I do have the time to spend on my poems, short stories, picture books and novels.
My poems, stories and novels combine a love of the outdoors with contemporary issues. Since much of my spare time in early youth was spent hiking and camping, my dad once said, Be careful you dont turn into a tree.
I am a persevering writer at the young age of 65. Some of my work is in journals such as The Dublin Quarterly, The Windsor Review, Poems Neiderngasse, The New Quarterly, Bogg, Stellar Showcase Journal, Poetry Sky, Scribbulations, Canadian Stories, Quills, Rubicon Publishing, PusonWeb, Skive and Tower Poetry.
My Poetry Chapbook In the Light of Day is available
My wife, Esther, and I are married 32 years, have four children, five grandchildren and we have lived in Truro, Nova Scotia, 21 years.
