All three of the books I’ve written [The History Teacher, The History Teacher 2.0 and The Christmas Choice], are available on FriesenPress and Amazon.

I am presently writing the third instalment of The History Teacher trilogy and hope to have it published by the end of this year. After that, I plan to begin writing, The Kid!

laminateLaminate flooring! Leggo for adults! Although, I suspect, not quite as much fun. Or as forgiving!. Make a mistake constructing the latest Leggo spaceship, you simply tear it apart and rebuild. Make a mistake with laminate flooring (especially where cuts are involved) and … ouch … break out the wallet!
