Joe Duarte


Joe Duarte is a classically trained journalist who after being downsized from his Canada-wide media company decided that fiction might be his calling. The characters in his stories are all fictional, although they are created from bits and pieces of people who have crossed his path in life. They’re bound to have some minor resemblance to people in real life, but they’re also likely to be completely different in other ways.

Feel free to convey your pleasure or displeasure with his stories here or at your favourite retailer. As a long-time journalist, Joe has developed thick skin so all feedback (nasty or sycophantic) will be treated with equal indifference, but other readers will enjoy your opinions. The only thing Joe asks is that you all play nice. Attack the viewpoints if you want but respect the holder of those views. Everybody is entitled to voice his/her opinion free from harassment of any kind.
