Freelance writing

I have been writing successfully since 1971. My work has appeared in local, national, and international magazines, as well as online, with articles as diverse as skiing for the disabled and writing, Canadian submarines and llama trekking.

 

In early 2011, I earned my membership in the Travel Media Association of Canada. I am also the author of four non-fiction books on Canadian history and twenty-four other books. I often add value to my articles with photos and videos.

 

Here are a few of my articles that are not for travel markets.

 

For all the links, see my full publication list here .... and my travel articles here.
