I am a writer and a builder. For over thirty-years I’ve helped harness the power of employees. I’ve led people in needs-identification initiatives, in building data-collection systems and in designing educational products. I’ve also built an organization from the ground up and have led others through mergers, split-ups and acquisitions.
Of my leadership talents, one set includes an ability to help an organization establish an identity, adopt a goal and then map out a plan for getting there. Another set includes an ability to design an organization and to develop its talent so it can travel the path toward its goal. This requires a clear, straightforward narrative; therefore, I’ve never seen my vocation as a writer and my career as a senior executive as anything but complementary.
My first story appeared in 1980. Since then, many others have been carried by Canada’s small but fine literary magazines. In 2008 I published my first novel, Ramasseur, in 2013 my second, Hickey’s Dead, and in 2018 Quinn.
