A retired principal, superintendent, and director of education in two school districts, I am a graduate of York University and the Ryerson School of Journalism.
I have published eight novels and seven 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 the bass section of Ontario’s premier a cappella barbershop chorus, Harbourtown Sound. Here is a song we performed at the international 2016 championship competition in Nashville, TN—
I live with my wife in Ontario and Florida, where I’m at work on a ninth novel and an eighth collection of tales.
