Brian was born in Toronto some 50 years ago- the third of four children. He is at least the third generation of a cross-border family. His Mother was born in the USA (her Mother was from Canada and her father from the US) but moved to Canada to marry her first husband. Dad was born in Canada; his father was from Ireland while his Mom was born in Canada but raised by a relative in upstate New York. Mom’s older brother was born in Canada but moved to the USA to join the USAF during WW II – and raised two families (at different times) in the US. Brian’s brother (and family) now lives and works in the USA while their two sisters (and families) continue to live in south-western Ontario.

WOW. This is not about the teenage angst pretty much everyone goes through. This is for the real, long-term, misfits. We who are "ghost people who are a little haunted and always in danger of being dragged under" (page 11).
