I’ve been writing since my early school days, and I come from a family of writers. My grandmother was a prolific writer in BC newspapers from the 1940s to the 1970s, my father published a book of stories about Barnston Island in the Fraser River, and my brother Bruce published “Letters to a Driving Nation” (he has more books in the pipeline). The first piece of writing I had published was a poem, followed by an award-winning historical essay. Since then, I’ve written and photographed many magazine articles. But being an avid reader of fiction, it has always called my name. Fiction offers a new avenue for me to explore different characters, different perspectives, different landscapes, different issues faced by society. Full Curl is my first published work of fiction.
