I have been in "the word business" one way or another since the 1970s. As a staffer at The Ottawa Citizen daily newspaper, I both wrote and edited copy. I've also worked on staff in the federal government editing books, reports and manuals, and writing promotional and educational materials. Now I freelance for local and national magazines, and various organizations.
I've been a regular contributor to Heritage, the Heritage Canada Foundation's national quarterly magazine, since 1997.
As well, I've been writing outdoor articles for almost every issue of Ottawa Outdoors Magazine since 2008. (Click the Outdoor magazine photo to read my latest article.)
