About John



John was born in 1968, in Nova Scotia. He now resides in New Brunswick with his lovely wife Lesley and two wonderful sons, Angus and Alex. His Labra-doodle ‘Rose’ is always by his side and his two cats ‘Sammy’, and ‘Angus Too’, know exactly how to torment and torture him in their oh so unsubtle kitty ways.

“My background is varied. I have been a forest technician in British Columbia, Ontario and New Brunswick and have spent 14 years owning and managing a veterinary hospital in Nova Scotia, all of which has given me the experience to write about people and their relationships to the land and one another.”
