A freelance writer and aspiring novelist. And also, apparently, a duelist ( Who says artist, says duelist). Author of the upcoming novel Count Morelli.
I have been a journalist, a teacher, and an editor. I briefly flirted with the idea of becoming a fitness instructor, but then I realized that what I enjoy most is flirting with actual people… oh yes, and writing novels. I am passionate about all things swashbuckling and seafaring, and when I’m not duelling or writing about duelling I can be found at a martial arts studio or a local spa — or a martial arts spa. I live in Vancouver, Canada.

The hilarious short stories in Chilled Almonds will help you navigate the most challenging of life's conundrums, such as finding a good swimming pool, ordering a drink at Starbucks, or chatting up a member of the opposite sex.
While such challenges leave many people in tears, Johnny Fox chooses to look at them from a humorous perspective. His advice is often more funny than practical, but overall I think this book will leave the reader better able to face life's struggled, armed with a sense of humour, optimism, and adventure.
Some of my favorite parts included reminiscing on "The Littlest Hobo," a Canadian TV show about a heroic dog. While personally I find the littlest hobo very cute and amusing as he tries to do human-like things with his paws, Johnny Fox sees him as a personal role model. This is both funny and inspiring, as the author portrays himself as the lone hero, traversing vast continents and never staying long in one place.
A study in disgusting swimming pools was another favorite.
Johnny Fox definitely has some peculiarities, and the collection allows us to get to know him. Some of the stories focus on these peculiarities, while others deal with everyday experiences that everyone can relate to and laugh at. It's a good mix, or should I say, bag of mixed nuts?
