About Me


A retired principal, superintendent, and school district director of education, I am a graduate of York University and the Ryerson School of Journalism.

I have published eight novels and six anthologies of tales, all of which are shown in the My Books section in the menu at the top of this page.  They may also be found in both paperback and e-book formats on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com. 

A free preview of the books, and details regarding purchase, may be found at this safe site—


You may also find me on Twitter @Talebender.

In addition to my writing, I sing in two barbershop choruses, Harbourtown Sound in Ontario and The Suncoast Statesmen in Florida.  Here is a sample from a 2019 performance, two songs that qualified Harbourtown Sound to appear for the fifth time at the Barbershop Harmony Society’s international world championship (in Los Angeles, 2020, which Covid cancelled)—

I live with my wife in Ontario and Florida, where I’m at work on a ninth novel and a seventh collection of tales.
