Q. You’ve written in many forms and genres over your decades as an author. Could you give readers some background on your career?
I studied history at Providence College and at the University of New Brunswick. I worked on farms and in the woods until embarking on a forty-year writing career. I cut my teeth writing television and radio ads, as well as history-based radio dramas for the Canadian Broadcasting Company. I wrote shipwreck documentaries for the Discovery Channel and docudramas for Canadian and American museums. I’ve published two anecdotal histories with Nimbus Publishing and three contemporary crime novels with ECW Press.
I realized years ago the one thing I could do reasonably well was write. For better or for worse, I stayed at it for a long time.
