London, Ontario, Canada
August 20, 1980
Having graduated Broadcast Journalism on a Friday, I began work on my first novel, 'Lion & Lamb' Saturday, and haven't stopped writing since.
A quarter-finalist in the 2006 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (ABNA) contest, 'Lion & Lamb' was added to the curriculum of a local high school the following fall. Combining elements of (decidedly exaggerated) life experiences with a love of boxing and athletics, a career in the fitness industry followed, and, soon after, 'The Meathead Manifesto' was created. Currently available in the Movati Athletic chain of gyms across Canada, and in local London, ON supplement stores, my plan is to bring the 4th & Goal Publishing brand into the mainstream, offering my generation a slightly-skewed and irreverent take on fitness, nutrition, and relationships.
Combined with my other novels, 'Writing In & Of Color' , 'Conversations with Tibor' and a free-verse collection, my works are now available on iTunes, and through amazon.com, Chapters and Indigo online as well in mainstream Chapters and Indigo Stores.
