Hello there! I’m a dreamer with a writing habit. Welcome to my website. Pour yourself a glass and stay awhile. No subscription required; the content is free. No pop-up ads, either.

If you like to hear about colourful characters who spent time in Canada’s West, you’ve come to the right place. These are some of the people I write about as a journalist, biographer and popular historian. I also write about memorable writers, actors, musicians, directors, comedians and other artists that I’ve encountered in my journalistic journeys across North America and beyond.

I write about them in books. See the Books section of this site. My latest title, the ebook Brief Encounters: Conversations with Celebrities, is listed right at the top of the Books section. Yes, that is me on the cover with Sophia Loren! Check it out. 

I also write about them in newspaper and magazine articles. See the Other Writings section of this site.

I give speeches about them. Learn more by clicking HERE.

If you want to know whether I’ve written about a particular rogue, rebel, scoundrel or scallywag who spent time in Canada’s West, first try putting the name in the search box at the top right of this page. If that fails to strike gold, you can reach me through the Contact page. I’ve covered the stories of many more individuals than I can list on this site.

To find out what’s happening now in my writing life – or what I have to say about things generally in the world of literature, music, theatre or politics – check my blog by clicking HERE.

I hope you enjoy your visit. Thanks for stopping by!
