Always interested in writing, an opportunity arose from my M.A. thesis on Morita Therapy. Eight months of research, an article extrapolated from it was published professionally in the Nertherlands. Later, using fiction I aimed to encourage families to reconcile fractured relationships. A twelve year commitment, the Mighty Orion Trilogy (last coming in 2016, Borealis Press) accomplished just that; especially for male readers. Thanks UBC for providing a foundation for a successful writing career.
