What I'm Working On

Since the release of my latest historical novel, The Wanderers, I've been working on my next novel in the series, The Explorers, which is the continuing saga of the family as they are involved in the history of what was to become the Dominion of Canada.
As well, I'm working on a series of short stories about the early pioneers of Western Canada, particularly those of the Prairies of what is now the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Actually they are stories of the cowboys of the 19th and 20th centuries of the western plains.
I expect to publish them in a single volume that is as yet untitled.

The Wanderers

My latest book, "The Wanderers" has just been released and launched by Chronicler Publishing. It is available through the publisher, Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Barnes and Noble, Borders, and many other bookstores. If it's not available at your favourite bookstore, ask them to order it.
"The Wanderers"is the continuing saga of the Marin family in North America in the early eighteenth century, a time when France and England were vying for supremacy.
The three sons of the original settlers, Pierre and Francoise Marin, struggle to survive and extend the family, but are stymied by many circumstances: Pierre roams the wilderness to the west, Jean returns to Port Royal, Acadia, while Charles wanders in a different sort of way in Quebec, New France.
My goal in writing these historical novels is to recreate the situations, circumstances, and history of early Canada.
In fact, the characters are based on the genealogy of my family that came to New France in the late 17th century.
