My Educational training includes a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor 
of Education Degree from the University of Saskatchewan, 
Saskatoon. In many ways my vocation has prepared me for my 
career as a writer. I taught Senior High School English for thirty-five 
years. My involvement in Parish work included catechetical 
instructions over the same period of time. 
Spiritual training included a three-year theological program (the 
equivalent of a deaconate program) which included Lay-Presiding 
and Homiletics. As a writer, I have published poems, short stories 
and some 1000 articles in more than fifteen newspapers over the 
past fourteen years, reaching over 65,000 readers.

Calgary Reader
"I have always been an avid reader of your column Pause for 
Reflection. It is a first and a must when I receive my Canora Courier 
here in Calgary. "A Time to Weep" [article] was a great comfort to 
me and I'm sure to anyone who read it. I read it over time and time 
again."
