Meet the Author

Most mysteries and suspense novels have to do with cops, lawyers, and PIs. My protagonist is a firefighter and I write the first firefighter fiction in Canada. True grit and reality are my writing tenets.My juvenile/middle grade/chapter books have no magic wands, wise talking creatures, vampires, or parallel worlds. My stories have unassuming boys who get in trouble and must use their brains to dig themselves out. There's fighting, conflict, loyalty, bullies, integrity, and courage. I've read samples to Grade 4 and 5 students and garnered excellent reviews.I was born in Welland, Ontario, a blue-collar town in the Niagara Peninsula. Backpacked the world and lived in Australia. I've never been fired from a job. I've worked as a paperboy, grocery clerk, sales rep, iron worker, framer, painter, mink ranch hand, assembly line rubber plant worker, concrete pouring, cherry picker, framer, freelance astronaut (no offers), boilermaker apprentice, various sales jobs, delivery driver, father, coach,and career firefighter and officer for 32 years. I've also played drums in the Black Gold Big Band for 8 years.I retired as fire captain with Edmonton Fire Rescue, a large Canadian service. I live in Beaumont, AB. with Gloria, whom I met on a freighter/passenger ship from Jakarta to Singapore. My writing has garnered several prizes in many genres. I travel extensively, do a bit of fishing and boating, drink demon rum, manage a writers group, do occasional renos, repair everything I have that's wearing down or breaking, and sit on my butt outside in the good weather reading a decent book. Check out my website for some excellent short stories.

    Just finished up this book and i got to say this is such an awes

    Just finished up this book and i got to say this is such an awesome story! It reminded me a bit of Lord of the Flies where kids left to their own having to find out how to live and what to do next to survive. This was such a suspenseful book and had it done within a few reading because i could not set it down! You grow to love the boys in this book and root for them the whole time. Building a relationship with the boys while reading makes it feel even ten times realer and the author does a great job at doing this! 2 Thumbs WAY UP!
