About

Thanks for visiting my website!  Here’s a bit of info about me…

In my former life I was a civil engineering professor – I used to spend most of my time either in front of a classroom talking about rivers, or traipsing around northern Canada studying rivers.  However, in 2014, I decided to take early retirement so that I could have time for the fun things in my life including writing, playing music, and spending time with my family.  I left the job and the big city (Edmonton, Alberta), and returned to live in a small town in my home province of New Brunswick on Canada’s east coast.

Like most other middle-aged  scientists, I’ve written and published many technical articles and reports;  however, I enjoy creative writing much more!  I’ve written a novel, “Defining Moments” as well as two little book of humourous short stories.  Please click on the covers below to find out more about them.

I love music and enjoy playing the guitar, ukulele, mandolin, and bodhran.  I am also learning to play the fiddle – but I have a feeling that it will be many years before I can actually say that “I play the fiddle”.  🙂
