Read Me


Five full-sized photo books have been published by My Publisher, a New York company, that  illustrate some of my travels. Four of them are shown above. They can be ordered from me. They cost in the $100-$150 range, and can be delivered in 4-6 weeks. “Colour Ethiopia” is my latest. One hundred pages bring to life the country of Ethiopia, its vibrant colours, its culture, and some of the fascinating aspects of the lives of the people.

In 2010, my first novel was published. I was very happy when “Next Year Perhaps” was short-listed for the Saskatchewan Book Awards in the ‘First Book’ category.

As you can tell from the cover, it is a fictional canoeing story based on my many experiences as a paddler. In fact, the pictures of shooting the rapids are of me – in the bow and in the water!

The book is now out of print, but the remaining copies are available through me at a cost of Can$17.95, plus a small amount for postage. Signed, of course.
