After graduating from university in 1981, I met my future spouse and moved to Vancouver, Canada. I worked as a manager for over 30 years, but life now is all about the writing. When I'm not doing that, I play racquetball and hang out with my buddy Shadow the kitty when his owners are away. My latest project is a departure into new territory. I was fascinated as a kid by the exotic sugar islands of the Caribbean, so it's no surprise my historical fiction novel "Dockyard Dog" will take you there. The age of sail from the American Revolutionary War through to Waterloo in 1815 grabbed my attention when I got older and I've combined these interests with The Evan Ross Series. As for "The Stick Bug Stories" I kept hearing news items in the media of people abandoning their pets. Trying one day to fathom how that could happen, I began wondering what happens to pets people abandon in the forest and the first two books were the result. Watch for Stick Bugs In School coming soon.
