I’m a quiet guy these days. I spend all my free time with my wife, Dolly. Some people might even think we’re glued at the hips.
She is my everything. She has had my back through good times and bad times and supports me in everything I choose to do.
I grew up in Montreal and stayed there until my 23rd year and I moved out to beautiful British Columbia to work in a mine, running heavy equipment. This was some 40 years ago. I spent 8 years at the mine and we then moved to St. Catharines, Ontario to look for work. Finding only work as a labourer, I decided to go to College at the ripe age of 32 and get my Radio, Television and Film Diploma and ended up working for Peel Regional Police Training Unit as a video producer for 3 years, after that, I chose to start my own video production company. After a few struggling years and I decided to go back to school, to Brock University, and get my Teaching Certificate. I gained employment with the Niagara District School Board, where I am technically still an employee, however, I have been off on Long Term Disability for the past few years. Being unable to teach or gain other employment, we decided to move to British Columbia to be with our kids.
This leads me to the present, where, while having physical problems, I didn’t want to end up being bored. I have had an inkling of an idea to write a book for several years, but had a hard time trying to come up with a plot and characters to go with it, when out of the blue, Deputy Felicity Steele and her dog, Chance came to mind, so, I decided to write a book about them. Chance was the name of my my loyal German Shepard that had passed many years ago, but I remembered the close bond we had and the intuition that was so much part of her make up. I've taken most of her traits and I have incorporated them into the book. Chance was and always will be one of those special animals that you never forget and always miss, but never regret a moment spent with them. I hope you enjoy the book.
