Author | Humanitarian | (former) Soldier

A cordial welcome to our website. As you read this, I may be at home with my soul-mate and life partner, Elaine Head, on bucolic Salt Spring Island, British Columbia. Or we may be in Vietnam, where we live for several months of each year. Or I may be traveling somewhere in an attempt to satisfy my insatiable wanderlust.

On this website I introduce our three books:

  •  Back to Vietnam: Tours of the Heart,  a memoir that I co-authored with Elaine and published in 2013.

  •  Finding Lien , a novel published in 2016

  • As the Lotus Blooms, a novel soon to be released (September 2018) by Black Rose Writing.

On this site I also share insights into my somewhat checkered life, as well as my wife, Elaine’s. These are briefly chronicled on the Biographies page. You can also tune into some of Elaine’s and my travels by going to the Our Volunteer Work tab and to the contact page and clicking on our blog. There you can read about the humanitarian work we do in Vietnam.
