I first started writing when I was sixteen, hammering away in the basement on an ancient Underwood typewriter until my hands were swollen. My first full novel soon hit 1200 pages. It was soon to become the Dwarf King series. I have continued to write for the last forty years, completing more than thirty novels. Along with my new work, I have begun to resurrect some of those early novels. I am now also working with young authors at John Paul II Catholic Secondary School here in London, Ontario. Our group is called Pens of John Paul II, and this year I helped the kids complete two 90.000 word novels. It was a pleasure to work with these nine young writers, and I hope to continue to work with this program in the years to come.
