My wife and I live near Chicago, Illinois with our two daughters. I am a graduate of the University of Illinois College of Commerce, and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

I became interested in writing when my older daughter played 'Wendy' in 'Peter Pan,' and the theater needed someone to 'fly' her (that is, pull the rope to make her fly above the stage). That was my first ever experience in theater, and I loved it. But I can't act or sing or dance, and I'm not handy, so if I'm going to have any more connection to theater, I'm going to have to write plays. Or maybe pass out programs.

My first printed book is Back to Christmas. My most recent book is Ethan and the Key.

Hi Bonnie,
I’m glad to hear you are looking forward to reading my story to your granddaughter!
I apologize for the delay in getting it to you. I just received the books from the printer this past Friday, and I sent them out via FedEx to you and all the winners for delivery this coming Monday morning. So that’s when you should receive your copy.
I hope that you and your granddaughter enjoy my story!

Hi Everyone,

Today I launched my new book! Here's the cover:

And the blurb:

Brian Jeffries has made a career out of helping his clients prepare for the future. After meeting this client, he'll be fighting to protect his own family's future.

And the link to the Amazon Kindle page:

Hardly Even Rich by Dennis Canfield
"Short stories have to have the same structure as novels: a beginning, a middle and an end. But in fewer words, a solid story still has to be told. In my opinion, anyway!

We have a small, but perfectly formed model right here.
