Now in my late seventies, I have had some success in the print media with the publication of non-fiction short stories and some poetry. A verse from my ballad, "The Westray Disaster," was published in a travel book and numerous letters to editors, including articles, were published in newspapers such as the Globe and Mail. "Million Dollar Winner" is my fist attempt to publish in e-book format.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in my late teens and have written on-and-off since then.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is "Million Dollar Winner," on Smashwords. The story behind it is simple: I wanted to publish, so I decided to compile my best short stories and poems into a single volume.

You are the pilot of a small plane who discovers his forest is cut down… You fight a cougar, yet have no wounds… You and your wife’s retirement home on a lonely west coast island is violated… You walk a historic wooden railway trestle with thousands… You’ve won the lottery -- Yee haw!
