Don’s stories often feature psychologically quirky characters that are frequently at the centre of some troubling situations. Perhaps it’s his lengthy career in social work and organizational consulting, but Don eagerly takes note of common life events that twist unexpectedly or the intriguing personalities he sometimes encounters in his daily activities. These observations provide the inspiration for many of the situations and characters that eventually appear in his stories. Don’s short fiction is now being published in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. He is a co-founder and active member of the Writers’ Group of Peterborough, Ontario.
