In October 2020, Allan Hudson reviewed Northern Survival and at that time, he asked for an interview for his South Branch Scribbler website. I agreed, and the interview went live today. In it, I talk about what inspired me to write Northern Survival and my fantasy novels. I also share a memory from my childhood when my family used to camp in my uncle’s old shed where my father was born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia.

Description of The Alexanders Vol. 1 1911 – 1920
In the turbulent waters off Saltcoats, Scotland, Danny Alexander dies in a boating accident. He leaves behind a wife, seven children and no hope. Dominic is the middle child. With a broken heart, his mother is forced to leave him with his bachelor uncle, Duff. None of them are happy with the decision.
Eleven-year-old Dominic Alexander must earn his keep. There are no free rides. Yet despite the difficulties, he finds his place in the structured world of his uncle and overcomes his loneliness.
Fortune and misfortune follow the young man until adversity forces him to make a decision that will affect the rest of his life. Is emigrating to Canada the answer?
Happy Saturday and remember: be kind to your future self.
