News & Events
Here you will find listings of news and events about my debut novel, Able Hands, along with news and announcements about other books in the series. When I book a reading or a signing, I'll list it here. If I do an interview or get a review, it'll go here too. There will be some overlap with the blog, but not a ton. Thanks for visiting!

Guardian officially launches September 29, 2021!
September 27, 2021
Well folks, so much for a mid September release. However, Guardian is finally officially available as of September 29th. It’s available at Amazon, Indigo, Kobo, and all the usual retailers. I hope you enjoy finding out what unfolds in the O’Connell’s lives after moving away from Clarington. You will discover, as the O’Connell’s do, evil persists. But how will the O’Connell’s confront and survive this continuing affront to their family?
Able Hands has become the first book of the Legacy Trilogy! Next comes Guardian, due mid September
August 20, 2021
It has felt like the longest of years for everyone, and that includes me. During that time I put my head down and finished writing what ultimately turned into a trilogy. With the warm reception Able Hands received, it only seemed a natural evolution to continue the story. The O'Connell's lives must carry on, with more mysterious events that continue to challenge all of them. Stay tuned!

My first newspaper profile appeared in the Simcoe Reformer this fall. Thanks to Ashley Taylor for taking the time to speak to me about my book, Able Hands, and about the events that led me to begin writing full time a couple of years ago. Here's the link: https://www.simcoereformer.ca/news/local-news/norfolk-man-publishes-novel/
Able Hands' official release date was Jan 20/2020

My first interview has been broadcast by Hub Media! I had a great time chatting about my book with the folks at Nolfolk DNA. Here's the link, in case you want to have a listen: https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-9xuex-d0e922?utm_campaign=w_share_ep&utm_medium=dlink&utm_source=w_share
Able Hands is now available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indigo/Chapters & other major distributors.
The links are up! You can now pre-order your very own copy of my debut novel Able Hands, which had its official release on Jan. 20, 2020. The book will be listed for sale through virtually every online book retailer in the world, but for now, the only link that's up and ready to go is this one on Amazon.com.
Thanks for taking a look at my labour of love! And if you do purchase a copy and you like what you read, please consider leaving a review on Amazon.com or Amazon.ca. Books only survive these days if they have multiple reviews on Amazon (crazy world, isn't it?), and the best way you can help an indie author like me is to leave a few sentences (or a longer review, if you wish) and a rating on Amazon. Verified purchasers are given priority on the site, but you can leave a review on Amazon even if you purchase the book somewhere else. Please, help a new author out, and leave a review. Thanks!

It has been a difficult year for everybody due to the coronavirus, a devastating disease affecting us all. My heart aches for those who have lost loved ones. Hopefully soon we will get past this and enjoy brighter days ahead. I spent my time in isolation writing my second book which is currently at the publisher's for evaluation prior to revisions. I hope to announce a title and release date soon. Stay safe, everyone!
