About this author

I am an independent researcher of early North American life, a raw historian at heart, and a writer by choice.

My own sense of history is enriched by a Mi'kmag grandfather and a family tree that can be traced back to the young surveyor James Cook, who began his career mapping out the St. Lawrence River system for General Wolfe during the French and Indian War.

I have just released my first book in the Gauntlet Runner series, titled The Gauntlet Runner-A Tale from the French and Indian War.

I hope you enjoy it!

"The Gauntlet Runner is a well written book about a period of history most of us know little about. The characters are brought to life by the writer as they experience the horror, tragedy and tribulations of the time. You will be educated and entertained as yo read this novel-and the ending will leave you wanting more!" Lorne M. Wright, AB
