Writing poetry and stories is like a global adventure in a land without borders.


Background Information

 I was born and raised in Rouyn-Noranda, northern Quebec, where hunting and fishing abounds. My father once said, “You spend so much time in the woods, be careful you don’t turn into a tree.” My love of the woods and contemporary issues form the basis of my writing. Lately I find myself focusing on poetry. To me, writing poetry is a global adventure in a land without borders. Working with Aboriginals, low-income housing and foster parenting developed areas of understanding, crucial to my writing. I have short stories in print and online as well as poems in international literary magazines such as Sky Forest, Hudson View, Short Story Library, Ottawa Arts Review, Dublin Quarterly and Other Voices. My wife, Esther and I, live in Truro, Nova Scotia. She, along with prayers from family and friends helped me immensely since my stroke in 1999. During this period we co-authored three novels now available from: www.synergebooks.com. In addition we placed many stories we wrote for our children on several websites. Esther and I are still on our honeymoon after 34 years of marriage. We have four children and five grandchildren. I love to write and am putting words to paper more than ever. We encourage everyone to do the same; it’s fun.

Accomplishments

I feel good to share my work through publication in print and online journals, as well as sites, such as: ABCTales.com; FaithWriters.com, The Preservation Foundation, Inc; and OurEcho.com. Also, during my recovery, which continues, from a stroke in 1999, my wife, Esther and I co-authored three novels with www.synergebooks.com. And the fact that prayers from family and friends saved my life, is quite an achievement. Prayers work!

Additional Information

My wife, Esther and I, are very active in church work and community outreach. We help out with meals for needy folks requiring at least one good home-cooked meal; sing with a small group at local Nursing Homes, and are on the Board of Directors of 'The Friends of Seniors Society' to help provide dental care. We share the above not for "ego" but to share the fact, age is no deterrent for helping others. Writing is fun and my wife and I desire to have more books published. We prefer an E-publisher contact us through my e-mail regarding the following books available for publishing: {We cannot afford to self-publish) THE LAD FROM POINTE DE BUTE--This is a Historical fiction for Young Readers aged 8-10, approximately 14,250 words.
