Anyhow, I’ve just returned from Roatan and am working hard on Gerry’s War getting it formatted for eBook upload. Also did some rewriting grammar for Will’s website – 2 units. Also finished reading THE ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. This is a good novel about social unrest in a time of recession and corporations squeezing everyone and everything. It raises some interesting questions on both sides. I think I understand a bit better why many people protest at G7 and G20 conferences. Check it out on the books link on my page.
Edward Yatscoff Information about the author you selected
- I was born in Welland, Ontario, a blue-collar town in the Niagara Peninsula. Backpacked the world and lived in Australia. I've worked as a paperboy, grocery clerk, sales rep, iron worker, framer, painter, mink ranch hand, assembly line rubber factory, concrete laborer, cherry picker, framer, freelance astronaut (no offers), boilermaker apprentice, electrician, various sales jobs, delivery driver, father, coach, and career firefighter and officer for 32 years. I've also played drums in the Black Gold Big Band for 8 years. I retired as fire captain with Edmonton Fire Rescue, a large Canadian metro fire service. I live in Beaumont, Alberta with Gloria, whom I met on a freighter/passenger ship from Jakarta to Singapore. My writing has garnered several awards in a few genres. I've climbed the Great Wall of China, tossed eggs at an Aussie PM, honeymooned with Gloria during the Grenada Revolution and saw Maurice Bishop, snorkeled with a marlin, botched smuggling a Playboy into Communist Russia, and was in Havana when Fidel shocked Cubans and stepped down. My wife made a pot of tea for the Queen of England in N.Z. I travel widely, do a bit of fishing and boating, drink demon rum, manage a writers group, do occasional renos, and sit on my butt outside in the good weather reading a decent book. My writing work consists of travel articles, YA, juvenile, how-tos, and has garnered several awards. Check out my website for some excellent short stories
