                This book is a historical biography of the author’s life. The author, born in the US of A, then at the age of seven is forced to immigrate to the USSR with his parents. For the next fifty years, the author lived the life of a subject of the USSR regime. He lived under the premise that the USSR was a communist paradise. He struggled to believe in the brainwashing of the people under communist rule. Deep within his heart and mind he hid the facts that what he was told was a lie. His dream was to return to the place of his birth. After a lifetime of struggle in a land that was not of his birthright he gained the right to return to the US of A, to live out the rest of his life in a true paradise of freedom.


                It was a hard story to read and at the same time to believe that such drastic events took place in the USSR.

                I was shocked, humbled and enlightened by this true story of history.

                It takes a strong man to live under such hardships. It takes an even stronger man to tell the truth and stand up proudly behind his words.

                I had walked out of the bush an old man. How Old, I did not know? The years had passed without the need to celebrate the remembrance of a birth date. There was something familiar about the place I stood, where the bush bordered the tilled land of a farmer's field. Slowly, faint memories recalled past moments of my life. As a young man I had walked across this field many times.

                Standing in this familiar spot, I noticed a man rocking lazily on an open porch across the field. The house, familiar in its change, a simple home I remember in a past memory. The old man resembled the face I have when I gaze at my own reflection. I know the man approaching; there is a twinkle in his eye. He looks old with warm grand-fatherly chubby cheeks, his belly reminiscent of Father-Christmas. His balding head and clean-shaven face is so much like a Grandfather of my youth. We pause and stop, our eyes studying each and every feature of the other. He is familiar; I search my memory for names to place with the face before me.

                He seems satisfied that after consideration, he has placed a name to my face. I have not placed a name to suit his likeness.


                I hesitate, shocked by the sound of someone speaking my name. "Yes, I am Thomas Chapais."

                "Thomas," he repeated in a voice reminiscent of a voice from my past, my youth. "Thomas, I am . . ."

                "My brother, Nicolas." I had remembered a name, a face.

                Two old men stood there dumb-founded with nothing to say but to repeat each other's name with favour, contempt, anger, sadness and an undying love that only kinship knows. Without an embrace, nor a handshake we bonded as brothers need to. Our eyes were reluctant to gaze away for fear of the image disappearing.


                An intriguing study of the thoughts of a man as he studies his life; and this is a great adventure.

                Every man wonders what-if, if lost in the bush, the mentality of a man will govern if he survives.

                Other places on earth have their stories of being lost, shipwrecked and the struggle to survive. This is Canada's great story of a man being lost and of his struggle to survive.

                 I thought Arrow Boy would fade. He did not. I thought the 2 horse would fade. It did not. Throughout the home stretch they battled. No other horse could catch them. Deadlocked they crossed the finish line. A photo finish! Time for the race, 2.02.1. The crowd sagged into exhausted mumbling. “The five horse got it.” “No way, the two horse came back.” “Dead heat.” “Five by a whisker.” “Number 2 for sure.” “No way!” The numbers flashed on the odds board, 5 and 2. The inside horse had won it. The outside horse a scant nose behind. Arrow Boy had done it.

                Shaking like a leaf I joined George in the grandstand. Arrow Boy, chest heaving, headed towards the winner’s circle.

                “What’s the matter, Professor?”

                “I just made a big bet.”

                “Oh yeah! How much? Ten bucks?” I did not reply. I just shook my head. “How much then? Twenty?”

                “A hundred and fifty!” I croaked.

                “You lost a hundred and fifty on one race! That’s not like you, Professor.”

                My wits began to return. “I made a mistake. I was at the wrong window. But I didn’t lose, George. I won! I won!”

                “You really did bet on the 5 horse?” exclaimed George, almost excited as I was.

                “Fifty bucks on the nose and fifty bucks on the five and two exactor both ways.”

                George took a quick look at the odds board. “The five is ten to one. That’s five hundred bucks. The exactor will pay at least a hundred, maybe more with the short priced favorite out of it. Heck, Professor, you’ll clear three thousand dollars at least.”

                “Would you put your name and address on this form, please,” said the male cashier. He placed a yellow form and a pen in front of me.

                “What for?”

                “It’s just a formality when a large amount of money is won.”


                A great insight to harness racing and the little bets that people make. Even if it is a little bet; problems can occur.

                Harness racing, betting, mystery, love, the story of an average man experiencing it all, a great little story.

Fiction adventure

                Cuthburt was the only weak link in a suitable situation for all. He alone could demand the termination of birth. Unlikely, for this would bring out the possibility of a scandalous exposure. By demanding that everyone keep their mouths shut then no one outside of Cuthburt’s inner circle would know. Would he love the child and embrace as a true bloodline. Edmond Baptist definitely thought not. the impression of Cuthburt’s affections was cold, caring only for protocol and what reflected well upon him. Given the opportunity, Edmond surmised that Cuthburt would overthrow all procedures in favour of making Winston of Scott the next King of England. Claiming the throne himself would allow himself to be able to formulate means to decide who would be his successor.


                The royal family is redundant, and maybe this story will plant the seed of change.

                I think this has happen in the past history of all royalty and I think it just could happen today. I would root for the under-dog. Long live the commoner.

                Not a fan of royalty, yet I was rooting for the Princess and the commoner, after all the Princess once had commoner beginnings.

Western /adventure

                Cuthburt, Duke of Wales will stop at nothing to sustain his placement and status in the Royal court and will vengefully dispose of Baptist who has assaulted the Duchess of Scott. Across continents of the eighteen-sixties and the cultures of British aristocrats and the uncivilized west of Canada, Cuthburt will demand retribution. Cuthburt alone will demand that only a true bloodline exists and that his son, Duke Winston, and Duchess of Scott produce a child to carry on the royal lineage. Baptist, a trapper, is thrown into a mix of deceit and revenge, yet holds true to his easy going nature and ability to foil a nemesis who tries to rule all beneath his Royal position. Cuthburt shall fail.


                All through history, royalty has been as ruthless and deceiving as a scoundrel, ruling to their own code. Nice to see a commoner put them in their place without being crass.

History has repeated itself over and over and royalty has made the same mistakes and are no better than a common criminal. Nice to see a decent commoner rise above, Baptist is the good guy.

                On Blackthorn Island where humans have found life pleasurable, and the land is fertile, where crops are abundant, they are well settled. Also finding the island to their liking are beings not human. In the forest, in the lakes, under the earth are Trolls, fairies, both good and evil. After centuries of living separately in their own worlds on Blackthorn Island, the two worlds collide.

Nerilocks . . . dwellers of the inner world of Blackthorn Island . . . they do exist.

                Being an undersized kid can really stink. No one knows this better than Elliot Blue, who finds himself thrust into a new school in a new town where he already has been made a target by the self-proclaimed school bully, Big Bobby Boolacheck ‘Big Bobby Boom!’ and his two hench-boys Booker and Biff Muldoon. Elliot’s life is destined to be made miserable . . ..

                Lucky for Elliot, a cousin from the big city is coming to live with them for a while.  Soon enough, the perfect town of Bunsel, which had been ruled by the Boolacheck family for generations would experience something never before encountered, an eleven year old, streetwise, super prankster, by the name of Jimmy ‘the Slick’ Blue.

                In BIG BOBBY BOOM! AND THE MARBLE MAYHEM!, Author Gregg Seeley introduces us to a pair of unlikely heroes, Jimmy and Elliot Blue.

                “No way man! Not us! We’re heroes!” Jimmy exclaimed, sarcastically. “We stopped a bank robbery and rescued the town from another of those boring parades, the same one that this town has to watch over and over every year featuring the Boolachecks. They should be thanking us.”


                Theses characters do everything that I, as a kid, wished I could have done for adventure, not to mention being able to turn the tables on some of the bigger kids that verged on bullying.

                More adults should read this story and realize what goes on in the world of children, both good and bad events that mould children for adulthood.

Fiction/hockey adventure

Book 168 pg. (5.5 X 8.5)

                Where is the passion for the playing of the game, the quality of play and the proud-ness of achieving the Stanley Cup? I must admit that every era of hockey, those that govern, those that play and those that observe have their faults, corruption, integrity, pleasures, success and defeats. For me it is the illusion of a child’s imagination of what the game meant that is lost.

                Currently, attention to hockey has been the status of jokes, puns, and insinuations, making fun of and laughing at the fact that the Leafs will never win the Stanley Cup again. Life of others, that lack success is now associated in comparison to the lack of success of the Leafs, nil!! Yet fans of the Leafs are steadfast and true. Imagine the bragging rights of true fans if the Leafs succeeded. Not one to be boisterous and visually or verbally exuberant, I would be one to root for the underdog and be pleased to see the Leafs win.


                Headlines blossomed when the end of the Twenty-twelve regular season left the Leafs at the bottom of the basement in points. A frustrated owner, when bombarded with questions that contained more innuendoes, snubs and jokes than actual interest in acquiring in-depth insight, sneered. A mad dog’s growl and foaming jowls will silence the bravest person. Sports reporters stood stiffly, mouths agape and arms holding microphones extended waiting for the Leafs’ owner, Mr. Smithe sputter a marketable quote.

                “Basement bargain price, Leafs for sale!”


                Anything is possible.

                This will never happen.

                You never know until they try.

Cowboy Poetry

My pony’s bridle lays across a hay bail.

A black saddle straddles a fence post rail.

From blurry eyes a tear drop may fall.

Ghostly apparitions of a memory to recall.


In days of youth mounting from fence rails,

rider on pony would wander endless trails.

My mount would forever faithfully guide,

when crossing haunted badlands at a stride.


                I am delighted by the romanticism of the poetry, making light of the hardships.

                I want to be a cowboy and live in the romantic era of open trails and endless plains.

                The cowboy life is humorous when looked at by Mr. Cheeks-Too-Soft.

                Legendary cowboy, Cheeks-Too-Soft relaxes in semi-retirement on the porch of a weathered old barn-board cabin to reminisce on the life of being a cowboy. From a book of collections of cowboy poetry, Cheeks will recite tales of adventure, love, lost love, dreams and the wide open spaces of riding to the next round up, the next meal and bedding down by a warm fire. Drop by, sit awhile, drift into the mystic essence of a cowboy-cowgirl’s world. Everyone can be a cowboy-cowgirl or dream of being a part of the lifestyle of the men and women that created the western ensemble.


                I was chocking on the dust and humour of the poems that give a realistic and a romantic twist to the cowboy life.

                I laughed myself silly, then a poem came along that twisted emotions into my heart that tears blur my eyes no matter how often I reread.

                A collection of cowboy poetry for everyone from intellectuals to children and men that never read; to a house wife like me that needs a short poem to boost happiness, thank you.

                A collection of short stories with the root of DéJ`vue in each story. Have you repeated your past over and over?

                I remember, remembering that I have repeated my past over and over. For what reasons are there, to explain why one’s life is in need of a repeat. Do we repeat life for the purpose of getting it right, to correct a past mistake, to change the outcome of a situation to suit our egos? For whatever reasons, we do relive moments of our lives. Some of us have fleeting memories of those moments. I remember, remembering to rewrite these lines, or did I? Or is it only my mind playing games? For moments like this we use the word DéJ`vue.


                I have had the sensation of DéJ`vue before. This book of short stories covers all the bases of that strange feeling of repeating something over and over.

                Fascinating, strange and sometimes probable. I eagerly look forward to have such a sensation.

                I got that shiver up the spin, that cool-tickle when I read one story that reminded me of a situation that I had that repeated its self, I think.

Linda Nylen - Mr. William

                "Mom grabbed me hard by the hand and cried. 'We must hurry William.' I stumbled behind her in the dark trying to slip on my shoes while she put my little sister Emily in her pram sitting by the front door. Out the door we would run, up the hill to the bomb shelter, closest to our home. The only light in the night were the flashes that came from the bombs exploding around us. They were advancing closer and I could feel the ground shake. Mom squeezed my hand tighter and pulled me faster up the hill, I kept tripping.


An Unlikely Champion by Christy Walter

                Mr. Phillips eyed the colt intently, gnawing on the long strand of hay. The laughter melted from his face to be replaced by a stern scowl over his brow. Turning on his heel he faced Joanne squarely and boldly said, "Joanne that colt ain't fit to be called a Morgan Horse. Morgans are supposed to be refined with wide expressive eyes, diamond shaped foreheads and a dainty head. Their necks should rise out of the back with a swan-like arch and strong shoulder. Tails should flow gracefully from the top of the rump. This horse is all wrong. Nothing fits. He is a disgrace to the breed. He should be put down. He won't be worth the hay to feed him once he's weaned."


Crack in the Rear View Mirror by Tammy Dupuis

                Approaching my only companion, I noticed blood on the bottom of one of her paws. "Missy, Missy," I spoke, touching her as I picked her up. A thick black spider crawled away on the floor off in the direction of the patio doors. Thinking nothing of it, I dismissed the retreating spider. My hands felt warm and sticky under her body, blood coated my hands like gloves. I leaned Missy closer and listened to hear her breathing. Silence surrounded her still form, this is all I needed to end my perfect day. Missy was my only companion, my home was now going to feel lonely without her there. I was overcome with sadness and grief that I had never felt before.


Stanley Clausic by Edmond Alcid

                Stanley smiled and drew another long , relaxing cut along the figure. He was pleased with the thought that his Grandpa would be the ideal image and idealism of a Santa. He sure bestowed simple life gifts upon Stanley. It seemed a shame that he had let so many important things in life slide. Relaxing and contemplating was one; talking and enjoying one's company was two; giving of yourself was three; whittling and making simple well carved toys was four.

                In the rugged bush of Northern Ontario a small bush plane crashes. On board is a ten-year-old boy and the pilot. In the early 1960's the only one capable of finding the crash site is Hag and his blood hound Wojo. Hag enjoyed the good life of living in the wilderness until events leading up to the crash and the search was hampered by his companion. Wojo has shown signs of rabies. It is too late when Hag discovers that the infected scratch on his arm was from his dog. There in the middle of nowhere a sick man and the boy he finds develop a bond that is stronger then life it self. Survival is the utmost of importance when there is a lifetime of growing up ahead. An adventure bigger than the wilderness of Northern Ontario.


                A powerful story. I was shocked by the ending. As heartfelt as the movie Old Yeller.

                I cried for the boy, I cried for the dog and I cried for Hag.

                A great story Idea, it could have really happened especially here in Northern Ontario. This is truly a Canadian story.

Short story collection, fiction, adventure, drama, comedy. 188pg. (all ages)

                A person’s life is a daily accumulation of events, emotions, dreams, true stories and fictional stories. At a point in time when an advanced age is achieved, memories become mingled and sometimes facts become blurred, that of truth and fiction, and sometimes, as is the case of a writer, made-up stories. This book is a collection of stories that I have accumulated over the years, presented as fragmentation of life, what was experienced, observed, and created from an imaginative mind. I present adventure, drama, comedy, true stories and fiction. It will be left to the reader to decide which story is true and which is fiction.


An enjoyable read, I was never bored. These stories cover the spectrum of life and genre.

This is what I like, short stories that have depth, and can be read over and over, and I never tire of selecting a story and reading again. Mystery, adventure, comedy, children stories, crime, drama, inspirational, mystic, and tall tales, the writer covers all. Theses stories are so varied that I am eager to get to the next story. A fulfilling read.

Fiction, mystery, horror, psychic dreams. (adult)

A cold sweat accompanied a haunting sensation when Ed’s body sprang up from the bed. Open eyes greeted complete darkness of the room. The subconscious mind in control of sleeping hours fought for possession against a waking consciousness. Ed could not distinguish between reality and fabricated dreams.

He was there on Roosevelt Street back in nineteen-forty-eight, fives years before feeling the chill of autumn at his birth in September, in the year of nineteen-fifty-three.

Ed could not understand why he could not shake off the dream, why it haunted the reality of consciousness.

Eighteen years had lapsed since Ed had resided on the gravel street.

Yet, there was an aurora that encircled the wooded playground; sometimes gleeful, sombre, chilling and when the gloominess of a rainy day prevailed, Ed would pass by on the farthest shoulder to hold at bay the haunting mist rising from the woods.

A man has dreams that are so convincing that he believes that events have occurred in reality. He seeks help from a psychiatrist, who in turn involves a detective and a lawyer. Everyone is convinced that the man has committed a murder, though the man states that the murder was committed in a dream, on the day that he was born.


It is amazing how frightening a book can be when the premise of the horror is self created in the mind of the character, and now my lingering thoughts are beginning to scare me.

Yes, fright can be created in one’s own mind and being locked in a dream where you can not wake is similar to being buried then finding out you are alive. Our own thoughts can be the worst of nightmares.

Crap, I am scared to go to bed for fear of having the same dream as the author.

                Herman Bottoms plopped his butt onto a stool across from Rusty Butt.

                "Hey, Herman. How's it going'? I've got an idea. How would you like to help me find a pirate's treasure? It would be easy for two smart guys like us. From what I've been able to find out there are caves around here overflowing with chests full of gold and jewels, suits of armour made of solid silver - you've probably heard the stories, right? - and daggers and swords with hilts encrusted with rubies and diamonds that had once belonged to a Spanish Prince. We'll be the richest kids in the world."

                By the time he finished, Herman was ready to grab his backpack and head for the hills.

                Rusty took him by the arm and sat him down by the box he used as a desk. "But first, we have to make the partnership official by forming a company-a secret company. I've already thought up a name for it; The Butt and Bottoms Treasure Hunters and Detective Agency. The Main business will be for the companies detectives, that's us, to search the neighbourhood for clues that will lead the treasure hunters, that's us too, to buried treasure."

                "The Butt and Bottoms what?" Herman asked excitedly.

                "The Butt and Bottoms Treasure Hunters and Detective Agency," Rusty repeated.

                Herman inched closer, hanging onto Rusty's every word.

                "Okay, rule number one, everything has to be a secret, just between us."

                Herman looked at Rusty with just a trace of mistrust in his expression.

                "Oh yeah, and here’s a good one. No girls allowed, not even considered. Any suggestions?"

                Herman thought for a moment. "Nope," he said, "sounds good to me."


                What an adventure, everything I had dreamt of when I was a kid. I enjoyed reading to my own child.

                A perfect adventure story, filled with ghosts, pirates, bad men, girls, treasures and most of all an adventure I wish I had when I was a kid. I hope that my children have only a fraction of adventure.

                I was disappointed to see that the only girl in the story was not included in the adventure. She had better be in the next story because she has more clues to future pirate treasure.

Expectations of what was to be seen reflecting off of the smooth surface of the water trough was not to be. Clear blue-green water, filled to the brim clearly showed an aged face of a man mystified by a personal image. Hints of specific features were reminiscent of Father’s, the family’s inherited nose, dad’s black eyes in furrowed brows and even Mother’s hidden silent humour.

                Where had the years gone? Brows furrowed and clouding orbs peered through slits of eye lids in an attempt to view the years displaying events hovering over a green pasture. Bits of recalled memories drift in and out of the mind’s eye, though not in chronicle order. Dates and years as mixed up as the faces of people at various stages of life. Faces were familiar though names were difficult to recall. Dates, years and ages were non existent. The stories were most prevalent, most vivid with minute details and background facts connected to others and their stories.

Farm animals; their personalities and stories also intermingled in time frames of Ed’s life, maybe more affectionate than family and close friends. Animals are funny, serious and emotional.


A wonderful reflection of how mankind begins to understand and compare the animal world and the human world.

Sometimes the simple life is just as interesting as the great adventures; and farm life can be comical and heart warming when dealing with farm animals.

                Soaring freely on wings of silky canvas fabric, a colourful kite of vivid hues is barely seen against a clear blue sky on an early September day.

                Higher than any of the other kites, it soars above the open fields, above kids resembling ants rushing about. Twenty assorted kites jostled for air currents and manoeuvrability space. These kites sailing twice the height of the tallest eighty-foot White Pine. Higher above them floated a sky flyer, its fabric skin taunt against a warm updraft and wind. Stressed to the breaking point, the tethered line held fast to the kite’s structural frame.

                Lazy dog day afternoons are meant for relaxing in the last warmth of southern winds, and the town’s folks of Echo Bay cast inquisitive eyes towards the sky. Hugging the shoreline of Georgian Bay, a body of water connected to Lake Huron of the Great Lakes, there is a clear view of the open farm land leading to the water’s edge. Folks mingled, as those do on a Sunday afternoon, and cast an eye every once in a while towards the dancing kites above Old Man Barns’ empty farm field.

                This is one of those summers that becomes noted in everyone’s mind, and will be recalled in declining years of age.

                Air currents billowed the sky flyer’s fabric, tugging, trying to set it free. The wind is free to travel the earth, to visit places, to bring warmth or a blast of cold Arctic air. A gentle breeze will carry a butterfly lazily along an unplanned path. Able to be cruel, a wind will flatten crops and pry buildings from their foundations.

                Today the wind played fair, yet teased with a firmness. Sewed seams of fabric held fast around arched framing. Mankind designs and builds structures to withstand the elements. In turn, the forces of nature test mankind’s inventions. A bout of strength unfolded this September day of Nineteen-Ten. The sky flyer held fast to the tethered line. Three lines, one attached to each side  and one on the head of the kite, joined a centre ring coupled to the line earth bound.

                Higher than any of the other kites, the Sky Flyer waved its long tail of spinning fan blades. A rainbow of colours flashed from each decorated blade. Competing kids unreeled line in hopes of matching the sky flyer’s height. One by one the lines ended in a fastened knot around spool reels. Eyes fixated on the height of the sky flyer. Kids cheered, some were disgruntled when being intimidated by the sky flyer’s achievement. Town’s folk paused, shaded their eyes and oohed an awed with delight when seeing the display of playful kites. Some wished that their childhood could have been as adventurous and playful.

                This September of Nineteen-Ten is a momentous day.


                Boy, kids had fun back in the olden days, what a realistic fantasy story.

                I lived childhood days with no store bought toys, no money, no modern electronic gadgets and us kids had fun. Modern kids are missing out on life.

                Thanks for letting me relive my childhood days. I looked out of the window expecting to see kids and kites flying.

                At sixty, I want to go fly a kite!

                I have schizo-affective disorder. While taking an economics course by correspondence, the stress of working and school was too much. I ended up in a the psychiatrist’s office again because I thought TV personalities were giving me special messages and that I had conversed with some rock ‘n’ roll artists through the TV

                “We’ve been waiting for you, David,” said a voice from the TV. The man continued, “Looking for you has bee like looking for a needle in a haystack. What you said was so profound, we followed you like you told us to. We have your money. Ten million dollars. All you have to do is come to Britain and get it. We want to see what you can do.”

                I stammered, “I’m an accountant not a musician. I can’t seven play an instrument.  Just want to be middle classed.”

                These TV personalities were warning me not to go into accounting. I was a writer not an accountant, they said. These artists offered to pay $10 million dollars for having followed me around from 1986 - 1993, and for stealing ideas from me. I believed this was how I was supposed to pay my dues. These writers followed me so they could steal ideas, then pay me what they thought the idea was worth. I flatly turned down the millions because I thought I could make my own money as an accountant. The artists shot back saying that they did not believe me.

                One doctor asked me, “Do you have the ‘Canadian novel’ you’ve been working on under your bed?” Of course the answer was no. All I had under my bed was a Playboy magazine.

                I was not losing my mind, only needed prescription pills to keep me rational. I was rational.


                What is the amazing part of this story is that the character has succeeded beyond the handicaps.

                I found that the character’s altered world is almost a preview of his current life, success as a writer and musician, minus the millions of dollars. Money is not everything.

Fiction, life adventure.

                Old sidewalks have always interested me.  Visit any old town, perhaps the town where you grew up and have not been back to in quite some time.  Take a walk down the side streets, lined with big old houses and stately trees.  Walk along weathered sidewalks with cracks and weeds poking through here and there.  Think about all of the lives that have come and gone within those old houses, and have walked on those old sidewalks in days long past.  What stories could these sidewalks tell if able to speak?  What secrets do they hold about the people who once walked upon them?  Here and there, what secrets are still hiding beneath?

                I have visited this old town, the town where I grew up and still visit occasionally. Have taken a walk down the side streets, lined with big old houses and stately trees.  Walked along weathered sidewalks viewing the cracks and weeds poking through here and there.  Thinking about all of the lives that have come and gone within those old houses, I have walked in the memories of those human souls in days long past. These stories the sidewalks have revealed to me, secrets untold. Continuing stories I may reveal.


                Quite a family tale that is rich and yet sadly plausible.

                Sometimes the most fascinating events in life happen to the average of people and I wonder why so much has happened to a single person.

                I can easily associate with Lizzy and her sadness, conflicts and struggles to survive, an inspiration to women of the times. Young girls today should read this story.

Fiction, Juvenile adventure

                Frowning with impatience, Robby O’Brien stood on the eighteen foot home made log raft with bare feet apart and anxious hands on slim hips.  “Are you guys coming or not?” he pleaded, glancing around.  He had to convince friends to leave now before someone noticed and blabbed to their parents.  No adult was in sight and he breathed in the warm June Newfoundland air.  “What good is the raft if we aren’t going to sail to Seal Island on it?”

                “Sail that far away?” Jim Lundy questioned, a concerned voice cracking.  He clenched both hands into fists and nervously paced.  “No way!  Not without permission from my parents!”

                “Then why in the world did we spend so much time building the raft?” Robby argued while the other six members of the village gang listened.  “What good is this bloody raft if we aren’t going to sail anywhere worth while?”

                The rectangular eighteen-foot craft constructed of old packing crates, logs and scrap wood stood solid and buoyant.

                Robby grinned into the salty wind and breathed in deeply.  They were sailing!  He eyed Jim and snickered.  “See, Jimbo, this is great.  There’s really no danger in sailing across a little sheltered bay like this one.

                The homemade raft sailed smoothly until a northwest wind descended without warning.  A phantom twenty-five knot gust struck earthquake quick and turned mellow water into a wild display of nature’s fury.  Robby’s nerves weakened when the waves in the bay rose.  His stomach churned and he broke out into a cold sweat.  The waves were not as severe as in the open ocean.  Still, they crested at seven feet.  Whitecaps were everywhere and the spray drenched the crew.

                Weeping screams of terror rose from the huddled bunch of panic-stricken friends.  Icy chills ran down his spine while struggling to keep the raft pointed toward the island.  Arms and legs felt weak, numb from the cold and about to fall off, yet he knew that holding tight literally meant survival.  He strained every ounce of his one-hundred and fifty pound body to keep control of mind, body and the raft.  Capsizing would mean death.  Muscles burned with tense pain and the rope from the sail slipping through hands blistered.  He knew he had no choice and must endure the pain.


                An exciting story where average children push for adventure and get caught up in a dangerous adventure. I wish my childhood could be as adventurous.

                A nice mixture of past evil forces being conquered by smart sensible children that know right from wrong.

Fiction, mystery, adventure. (All ages)

                Old sidewalks have always interested me.  Visit any old town, perhaps the town where you grew up and have not been back to in quite some time.  Take a walk down the side streets, lined with big old houses and stately trees.  Walk along weathered sidewalks with cracks and weeds poking through here and there.  Think about all of the lives that have come and gone within those old houses, and have walked on those old sidewalks in days long past.  What stories could these sidewalks tell if able to speak?  What secrets do they hold about the people who once walked upon them?  Here and there, what secrets are still hiding beneath?

                The author’s first novel, ‘The Sidewalk’ revealed stories of families and mysteries within a small town. The Letter ties up the stories generations after the mystery was revealed. Conclusions and a closure unfold in a web of life discovered in ‘The Letter’.


                A stand alone novel, I rushed back to read the novel ‘The Sidewalk’ then read ‘The Letter’ again. Such a fulfilling journey through generations of families and a lingering mystery.

                A twist of intrigue that surprised me throughout the journey of generations.

                A picture-book of black and white sketches and photographs of barns. A history of different types, sizes and shapes of Canadian barns in Southern and Northern Ontario. Each picture has a caption. Poetry accompanies the selection of pictures.


                It is a pleasure to just look at the pictures over and over again. The barns seem to be talking through the poetry.
