Meet The Author

bruce-authorBorn in Hamilton Ontario, my father was a factory worker and mother a home maker. My grandparents purchased Windemere Cottages on Kenisis Lake in the Highlands of Haliburton in the early 70’s. It was not long before we had moved up to Haliburton to live in its serenity and beauty.

Grade school and high school was filled with sports, which I excelled at. Eventually I began working in the local resorts and took an interest in cooking. After High School graduation, I remained in the local area for a few years. Eventually it was time to move on to the outside world.

I joined the Canadian Forces in 1984 and retired in May of 2013. I am a competitive individual, having earned many medals in culinary competitions and pistol marksmanship. Hobbies include gardening, reading, cooking, scuba, nature and most of all fishing. Every year I still find myself in the Haliburton Highlands fishing my childhood lakes.
