I originally hale from Winnipeg, Canada a snowy place in winter that enables a lot of book reading and story writing. Recently my wife and I relocated to the beautiful New England area in the US. I have always wanted to be a writer, as far back as my first self-published poetry book in 1987 (made in school). When graduating high school I ignored my passion for writing and earned a business degree from an upstanding Canadian university so that I would not have to worry about how to pay the bills. More recently I have picked up pen and paper and decided to share my stories with the world.
