“The Ghostwriter,” born in the Haida Gwaii realm, was raised by his grandparents—on Haida Gwaii, not far from the Golden Spruce—until he was six years old. His dad was a Native American, born in Ohio, and died when the author was just two years old. His mom was a Métis who was born in Cowley, Alberta and died when he was forty-six.
A few words from the author: “I walked the path of a renegade for many years, until 1980 when I met my wife in, of all places, the Yukon. I had a Harley and two suitcases, heading nowhere. For the last twenty-one years we have both lived, laughed, cried, loved and learned together. I tell the stories and she is my trusty scribe. Together, The Adventures of Grey-Dawn was born.”
