Born in Penticton, British Columbia in 1950, raised in the fertile Similkameen Valley and then transplanted to Vancouver Island. As a young man I was influenced by many diverse cultures from the Potlatch of our first nations, the greed and snobbery of our English overseers, the stoic Chinese community, a large hard working Sikh and Hindu community and waves of diverse European emigrants. Having friends in all the communities I soon realized much of the unhappiness and prejudices, between these beautiful people, was, and always has been caused by a lack of political understanding.
Ended public school at grade ten, worked through the sixties in a world in transition where kids like me struggled to find a way to change the world into a place of peace and love. It didn’t work.
Back to school in the seventies, learned about the magic of the human body, married my wife Rolande, had two children, worked in a medical lab for thirty five years, dreamed of the ideals of the sixties, read history and political theory, built three sailboats, renovated or built six houses, ran as an independent candidate for our provincial legislature, wrote four novels, sailed across the Pacific ocean twice and in the winters I sailed my boat in Mexico and in the summers lived on Vancouver Island.
Today a happy grandparent enjoying the challenge of trying to build stability into our future world. I hope you will join me.
