I’ve been a potter, painter, board game inventor and served as a member and team
artist on an archeologist dig, in Amman, Jordan. I’ve pulled weeds in a golf course
(The only job I have ever quit!), dock worker, bus-boy, waiter, and ditch digger for a
railway. I was also the first in my family to finish high school.
While attending night school for nine years in pursuit of a Fine Arts degree, followed
by graduate courses in administration, I simultaneously taught in both elementary
and high schools which included working with adult and Aboriginal students in both
English and French.
These skills and experiences provide ample material that drive my imagination to
weave intricate and gripping mystery novels.
