Writer's block is real and don't let anyone tell you different! One minute your pounding away at the keyboard, words flowing faster than you can type, "In the zone!" Then BOOM, it's all gone.

I find the best method to deal with this cursed affliction is to walk away. Take a break, do something else, preferably something that does not require thought. It is the rush of several ideas, that sets up the road block, stopping that artistic pathway between the brain and the fingertips.

It is only temporary, before long the block is down and the words begin to flow once again down that artistic pathway.(less)

As an author of Canadian Naval stories and history, many new experiences have been opened for me. I have been invited to lecture at several of the leading museums in Canada, as well as many special interest groups. My travels have taken me from St. John's, Newfoundland to Calgary.

During this time I have met many people from all walks of life, some interested in history and others that have actually read my books. I say "actually" because it still amazes me when some tells me they have read my books.(less)

Ever hear the phrase, “They talk like a sailor.” A sailor has their own language and “cursing like a sailor” is not the banter that we have come to stereotype with this old and noble profession.

“Patrick O'Brian is an incredible Naval Author. During WWII he drove ambulance during the Blitz.

As a Paramedic myself, it is good to know an "ambulance driver" can become an exceptional naval author.”
Roger Litwiller, White Ensign Flying: Corvette HMCS Trentonian

“When the big German guns at Calais fired on us, we realized, we had been strafed by Spitfires from the RAF during working up exercises for the invasion, accidentally attacked by the USN off Normandy after D-Day and shelled by the British Army in the English Channel. It was about time the enemy took a few shots at us too!"
