Interview with F.W. Covey

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Western Canada. Living in rural Alberta, I learned about animals and nature every day.
There is a balance in nature that must be protected. If we lose the balance we are headed for destruction.
People's actions effect the balance in nature and the balance in their own heart. I hope my writing will help
people of all ages realize that they have the keys to make this world a wonderful place to live in.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing as a child. Mostly poems and songs..... which I feel inspired to continue.
What's the story behind your latest book?
When I see people hurting one another for their own benefit it bothers me.
I feel the Golden Rule is a double edged sword. Most people want others to treat them as they would like to be treated. Do
unto others as you would have others do unto you..... is a lot harder. The other cutting edge of the sword is that ... what
you do unto others, you do to yourself. Hurt others and you leave ugly scars on your own heart.

I tried to express the message of The Golden Rule.... in terms that people of all ages might understand and make a part
of their daily lives.
