Edward Curnutte


Literature has always held a great place in my heart. However, when I wanted to read the book I could never find, I decided to write it myself. My inspiration is derived from the many stories told by senior members of my family, who are a wealth of knowledge and wisdom. I could sit and listen to them for hours!
Throughout my life I’ve had the opportunity to travel to many places in the world and meet many wonderful people. Having grown up in Canada’s most southern city, Windsor, I ran a small landscape business for almost thirty years. Following that, I went to Ukraine in 2009 where I taught English for seven years.
I enjoy sailing, flying, reading, writing – and my grandchildren. I have also taken up the violin and enjoy learning foreign languages.
“Aydy’s Fiddle – The Memory Thief” is my first novel. I’m well along on the next – “Aydy’s Fiddle – The Fellowship of the Master.”

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It wasn't actually a story; it was a documentary. The volunteer group I was involved in were restoring an old airplane from WWII. It was my job to dig up photos, interview crew, and search public records about this aircraft. I had a blast putting all the material together and writing the story. All the proceeds ended up going to the restoration effort. All good fun.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I'm a voracious reader and so I'm always looking for new stuff. I generally search within my favourite genre, historical fiction/fantasy, but I've also been caught reading classic literature, drama and comedy.
