My Books

I have published eight novels in my Maggie Keiller/Derek Sloan crime-fiction series. The first seven are: By Precept and Example; Until He Killed Her; Lockdown; First, Do No Harm; Missing and Murdered; Nobody Counts On Dying; and The Resurrectionists.

The newest is After The Lake Caught Fire. The pristine shoreline of Georgian Bay north of the resort town of Port Huntington is threatened by voracious developers planning to build a vacation condominium development.  At the same time, environmental testing reveals that the land proposed for development is a toxic wasteland, a result of chemical dumping by a long-ago munitions manufacturing company.  The public outcry increases dramatically after several unmarked graves are uncovered at the site of a former Indigenous residential school located on the property. 

All these events unfold in a dramatic telling that will hold every reader spellbound.

I have also published seven collections of tales, including: On Top of the Grass: Tales of a Snowbird in Florida; It Matters to Me: Tales of a Young Father; The Passing Parade: Tales of a Bemused Bystander; Tall and True: Tales of an Unrepentant Fibber; Ranting, Raging, and Surviving the Storm: Tales of a Closet Curmudgeon; and I Haven’t the Time: Tales of a Woke Wayfarer.

The most recent one is I Calls ‘Em The Way I Sees ‘Em: Tales of a Capricious Critic, a collection of essays and poetry marveling at the world I encounter every day. As usual, the tales are written from my own perspective, but with enough in common with you, I hope, that you will recognize and appreciate my points of view.
