Who Am I?
For thirty (long) years, I toughed it out in the corporate world, chiefly as an editor for various Canadian book publishers. Sometimes, I had the opportunity to do work I enjoyed, but too often, I didn’t. Towards the end of my career, the type of work that interested and challenged me began to slip away, and I became less and less happy.
Then one day, I realized something: creative, out-of-the box thinkers like me don’t belong in the corporate world, and if I wanted “meaningful” work, I’d have to create it for myself.
That was when I decided to pursue the only work that I’d ever really wanted to do since I was a child: the work of a novelist!
My first novel, Love Is the Punch Line, an offbeat comic romance between an American stand-up comedian and a Canadian businesswoman, was published by Moonshine Cove in April 2018.
In the meantime, I’ve created a blog for other novelists in order to share my ideas for making writing a lot easier and more enjoyable. Please feel free to post your own ideas and comments.
