Hello there! I’m a daydreamer with a writing habit. Welcome to my website. Pour yourself a glass or a cuppa and stay awhile. No subscription required; the content is free. No pop-up ads, either.

  • Visit my blog HERE to find out what’s new in my writing life and what I have to say about things generally in the world of literature, music, theatre or politics.


I’ve been a full-time writer for most of my adult life. If you’d like to know about colourful characters who spent time in Canada’s West, you’ve come to the right place. These are some of the people I write about, as a journalist, biographer and popular historian. I also write about memorable writers, actors, musicians, directors, comedians and other artists I’ve encountered during my journalistic journeys across North America and beyond.

I write about them in books. See the Books section of this site. My latest title, Brief Encounters: Conversations with Celebrities, is listed right at the top of the Books section, and is available both as an e-book and in paperback. Yes, that’s me on the cover with Sophia Loren! Check it out. 

I also write about them in newspaper and magazine articles. See the Other Writings section of this site.

I give speeches about them. Learn more by clicking HERE You can also click on the following links for more information on: A to Z Storage (find out more here), Social Marketing London Ontario click here, Kitchens Inc. Kitchen Design & Renovations click here and a Idealwarehouse.com click here.

If you want to know whether I’ve written about a particular rogue, rebel, scoundrel or scallywag who spent time in Canada’s West, try inserting the name in the search box above, or check my list of profiled individuals by clicking HERE. If that fails to strike gold, you can reach me through the Contact page. I’ve covered the stories of many more individuals than I can list on this site.

I hope you enjoy your visit. Thanks for stopping by!
