I was born in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. I studied at Georgian College of Fine Art and spent a good portion of my twenties wandering and exploring the land that inspired "The Quest for the Black Dragon". I currently live in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada with my beautiful wife and our three awesome sons.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Some people in my life have claimed I have a strange reading list. I like to read. I read just about anything. I've read C. G. Jung, Stephen King, Patrick Rothfuss, John Irving and many others. The genres range from psychology and philosophy to biography, fantasy, literary fiction, folk lore and now I am reading a history book titled, "The Norse Atlantic Saga". (True, the latter is for research, but I truly am enjoying it like any other book I've read.)
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have two devices that I use. My iPhone and my Kobo mini. I love them both.

    This was a very informative read. Reading it basically convinced me to self publish as an e-book instead of trying to chase down agents for traditional publishing. The only issue I had was translating a couple formatting things for my Mac. However, it is so simple that I (being nearly illiterate) was able to figure it out. One shot submission. I didn't even have a single error to fix.
