Coming Up:


I have just finished research and writing of
Diagnosing the Legacy: Indigenous Youth and Type 2 Diabetes. This book will be published by the University of Manitoba Press in the spring of 2018. Commissioned by the University of Manitoba Faculty of Medicine it relates the compelling tale of the relationship between university-based researchers and pediatric endocrinologists, and communities and families in isolated regions of northern Manitoba and Northwest Ontario where the devastating disease of diabetes is showing up in younger and younger cohorts.

Researching and writing such books is a skill and service I’m excited to make available to those in the worlds of medicine, science, academia and even business who have extraordinary stories to tell and feel an urgency to get those stories recorded. Please find me through my contact page.


Just Published:


I am pleased that two books about the histories of important Ontario schools are finished and out. The 150 year history of Trinity College School in Port Hope is called Hearts and Minds. The fifty year commemoration of Royal St. George's College in Toronto is The Best Version. Both books were produced by Vancouver's Echo Memoirs with me as the writer.
