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 and popular historian. I also write about interesting people I’ve encountered in my travels across North America and beyond.

I write about them in books. See the Books section of this site. My latest title, Rogues and Rebels: Unforgettable Characters from Canada’s West, is listed right at the top of the Books section. Check it out. Watch the trailer by clicking HERE.Rogues and Rebels-cover-HIGH RES

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, you can reach me through the Contact page. I’ve covered the stories of many more 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!
