There's Something About Splendid Isolation For Me...

I grew up on a Peace River homestead with no TV, no indoor plumbing or telephone but with books and radio, horses and hundreds of acres of freedom and responsibility. Adventurous teachers, more books and a high school dormitory in Fort St. John led me to UBC, bolstered by hometown scholarships, determined to become somebody useful in this world, somebody creative maybe. Many decades and careers and jobs later, I am an author and a lighthouse keeper. Suits me to a T!
