Welcome to my author's page. I'm an Ottawa-based speechwriter and author, and most of this site is devoted to the books I have written about two boys, Jake and Eli, whose friendship is tested by the War of 1812.
Here you'll find information about me, about my books, and about Jake and Eli's world, including links that will provide insight about the history, and about those characters in my books who were based on real people.
You'll even find the video of how I was arrested for promoting my book.
Teachers wanting to arrange for a school visit will find out how to do that. Those interested in securing rights to the story will be able to contact my agent. School kids wanting information on the War of 1812 for their projects will find a wealth of material. And those wanting to get in touch with me to ask questions or share ideas can do that too.
