Me and Dupuis
I Wrote this "story" in 2013 and entered in the Klondike Visitors Association "Authors' on Eighth" where it took 1st place in the poetry division. The only truth to this story, is that the emotions and frustrations are real, and it could have taken place somewhere or sometime.
The "Old Cowboys Ranch"
In spite of its title, this could relate to all of us, you needn't be a cowboy! (But then, everyone wants to be a cowboy)
The Ghosts of Dawson
This story was also a 1st place win in the 2014 "Authors on Eighth" competition. I wrote this after a summer in Dawson and around the Yukon. All the "happenings" in the story are true, and the 4 men are all authors that lived in Dawson City.Robert Service,(the Bard), Pierre Berton, Jack London, and Dick North, a Yukon author of many historical books.
This story, as I mentioned, is just a teaser of one of the new stories in my book. I hope you enjoy it, and then purchase the book to get the full story and many more new tales.
A RAVENS VIEW
I want to put this poem on my site to make available to everyone to read.
It will be in my next book, but I think it's message is important enough to have as many people read it as is possible. Especially those in the government and the Department of National Defence.
The Ballad of Dozer Paul
This is a true story that happened near Grand Forks, BC in the spring of the late 1980's. or early 90's. As a "local history" piece, this story was published in the Grand Forks Gazette newspaper in 2014, with the kind blessings of "Paul and Buttercup".
