Have one writing credit to date. My short story, “Little Man” in One Book Aurora contest. Published in the APL magazine.


I worked 40 years at York University in Scott Library. Retired 2015. English major at York 1970 to 1972. In 1973 I was a volunteer on the Peace Ship pirate radio station working with Abe Nathan. I was the first on-air broadcaster for the radio station which was anchored in international waters in the eastern Mediterranean. Love, Peace and Rock and Roll. I came back to writing many years later after I returned to Canada, perhaps there’s still a memoir lurking in the shadows.
