An aspiring author, I live on the east coast of Canada, where the moody waters and amazing sunrises always impress me. I started writing when I was in my early 50's after being inspired by my favorite author Bryce Courtenay who started his writing career at 56. 

I am the author of an international thriller - Dark Side of a Promise - as well as three volumes of short stories dedicated to my grandchildren. SHORTS Vol. 1 , 2 & 3. All available at or .ca

My second novel - Wall of War will be available in 2017. I am working on my third novel which is historical fiction beginning in Scotland in 1911 and will tell of the Alexander family, the ancestors of my main character, Drake Alexander.

A beautiful wife, a loving family, surrounded by books, a huge JJ Cale fan, a woodworker, self-employed carpenter. Life is good and I'm a very happy man.

I publish a blog called The South Branch Scribbler where I host authors and various artists each week.
