Colin Hayward has been publishing stories and travel articles for over twenty years including a book of stories published in 2006 called Other Times Other Places. A review in Prairie Fire says, “Hayward's stories are worth reading. Often dark and sad, even frightening, the author's creations are microcosms of the human condition. The stories allow us to see into the human psyche, to realize that the various parts of the world where we seek our pleasure are not so different from our own.” His next collection, Dark Enough to Dance, is due to be published in 2011.
Hayward’s love of scuba diving and sailing, led to the writing of Fluke, a novel featuring the strength, intelligence and beauty of the belugas that populate our northern waters. The novel shows us a possible future and is a must read for anyone with an interest in the forces that affect our planet.
