I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta Canada where I still reside. I grew up working at the racetrack with my fathers horses.

It has long been my dream to start a small press focusing simultaneously on books for children struggling with behavioural/complex needs issues and adult and YA fantasy.

I have been writing for as long as I can remember and working with children dealing with behavioural issues for over a decade. It seemed appropriate to combine my two passions, children and writing. To this end I began Burroughs Manor Press and the website www.solvingbehaviour.com.

I have a deep love of anything fantasy and am an avid reader. I have read Lord of the Rings over a hundred times in my life.

As I find myself sidelined by unexpected injury I have had considerable time to reflect. A colleague, mentor, leader, and friend once told me that I spend more time on self-improvement than anyone he knows and that I’ve done enough. But have I? Recent reflection has given me new insight into my journey from the severe traumas of my childhood to the work I do with students and staff. As I move t... Read more of this blog post »
