The author was born on a small farm in Nova Scotia, Canada, to a conservative, church going family. In Nova Scotia, he gained a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce from St. Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and began a career in the Canadian Revenue Services. In 1984, he obtained a Degree in Education from St. Mary’s University.
Working in a large city as a teacher of seventeen- and eighteen-year-olds, he enjoyed many brainstorming sessions with his students regarding life for them, their parents, and what to expect in their future. After years of compiling notes, he thought it appropriate to use them in reflection of a couple which was in a crisis, and write them as teaching notes for all ages and relationships.
He now resides in Canada, working as a teacher and writer.
