Author of The Glass Character, a novel about the life and loves of silent screen comedian Harold Lloyd. Loved writing this book, love Harold! The Glass Character was published by Thistledown Press in spring 2014, and is NOW available in both paper and ebook form through Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Thistledown Press.ca, and everywhere fine books are ordered over the internet. Harold is already generating lots of excitement, and the DVD of his famous clock-dangle from Safety Last made everyone howl at the book launch. I'm also the author of two other well-received novels, Better than Life (NeWest Press, 2003) and Mallory (Turnstone Press, 2005). My (ongoing) process/spiritual biography: writer from the start. Obsessed with the word. Climbing that mountain, sliding down, climbing up again. Most gratifying quote: "Better Than Life is fiction at its finest" - Edmonton Journal
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford appeared at a recent press conference to dispell the vicious, untrue, really really bad rumors swirling around his mayorship.
Among other things, Ford stated, "I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict of crack cocaine. I did not use crack cocaine this morning. I did not use crack cocaine this afternoon. Nor do I intend to use crack cocaine during this press conference."
"I do not sell pot to middle school students. I did not sell pot to middle school students this morning, I did not sell pot to middle school students this afternoon, and I will not sell pot to middle school students during this press conference."
"I will make no comment on a video (which may or may not exist) depicting my use of a crack pipe (which may or may not exist) exposing a drug dependency (which may or may not exist) that will likely end my career (which may or may not exist)."
