Collapse



After the last Day Book One


The first book of the trilogy version of After the Last Day


When global economic collapse hits a small town in Dufferin County, Ontario, Canada, many residents flee in search of relief while others choose more horrible solutions. The catastrophe overwhelms elected governments as the long-distance supply of food collapses and desperate populations fight for meagre rations. Some local residents band together to survive, but their efforts are threatened by an elite that sees collapse as a chance to take control. Bloody fighting amongst ethnic groups and criminal gangs spills out of the cities, engulfing much of the countryside. Threatened by repression and murder, the local progressive leadership seeks allies in order to survive. They join the small, free enclave of Huron Territory, and its struggle against internal shortages, starvation, and preparations to fight the brutal dictatorship that soon dominates most of Ontario.

Echo of the Whip-poor-Will


Memories of High Falls Spanish River Ontario



This is a personal vignette of some of my life in High Falls up to about Grade 10. At that age, High Falls changed from being my world to become my sometime refuge as more of my life was focused on the outside, high school and university. In later life, it has become my refuge of memory, my spiritual place that anchors while waiting to be called into the safe harbour. This is a letter to my family that perhaps others associated with High Falls might appreciate. I have added a fictionalized drama to the work to keep it from becoming a mere laundry list of some of my memories. High Falls had disappeared as a town by 1980.

Sherwood Green



“We will destroy Toronto. We will destroy industrialism.”

In a world where industrialism devastated the planetary ecosystem at a fast pace, the environmental movement split into two factions. The established environmentalists evolved into business operations where paid jobs, fundraising, government and corporate grants became the main focus. This faction believed that green corporations and growth could save the planet and allow the destructive ballooning of human numbers to continue. They thought that electing members to industrialist controlled parliaments would make a difference. The second faction understood that only total destruction of industrialism would be effective, allowing the remaining species to survive and perhaps some humans. At the extreme of this group sat the deep resistors, organized in cells so black that the security forces were not aware of them until they first attacked.

Sherwood Green, in a spectacular series of fires and explosions, launched a surprise attack on Toronto, the strategic financial centre of Canada. The frantic, response of police focused on the above-ground supporters of Sherwood Green.

Jos Amiel, a young reporter for the local, superficial TorontoNewsNow television network hoped that covering Sherwood Green would build his career. Events drew him in deeper as the stress of the attacks exposed the seamy underside of the fragile city culture. Jos began to understand, if Sherwood Green succeeded, they would destroy Toronto along with his career.

The Seventh Path


A century and a half after the collapse of the global economy, the residents of the Great Lakes basin struggle with the aftermath of the industrial ‘Before Time’. Climatic extremes are a persistent reminder of the dangers of straying from the loop of life. There is a risk of losing useful knowledge from the brief intellectual, industrial era of humanity’s existence on Earth and sinking into a world of total mysticism and ignorance. A young girl is given the responsibility, the quest, to find the true light of wisdom that balances the spiritual with the scientific. She grows into a mother and grandmother walking paths that lead her astray from the quest. In her concern for the trend to mysticism, she is awakened to the larger threat from attempts to restart technological domination of the natural and human world. Her seventh path leads her back to this appreciation of her true quest.

Mike Donovan Mysteries


Set on the railways of southern Ontario


Murder on the Goderich Local



Steam dominated the railways of the world for a hundred years, but the powerful marriage of internal combustion and electricity gradually pushed steam aside. By the end of the 1950s, steam was fading fast and diesel locomotives were dominating. The old romance of living steel and tough men would not go quietly. On a small backwater sub-branch of the Canadian Southern Railway, the men of the old and the new collide. Love, hate, ambition and intrigue came together to end in tragedy. Ex-Mountie Mike Donovan, hoping for quiet semi-retirement as a railway cop soon discovered that sleepy backwater Ontario provided more excitement and mystery than he thought possible. As Donovan digs deeper, he finds killers are not always evil and victims not always deserving as the old motives of lust, jealousy, love and fear play out their deadly dance. In the end he finds, in spite of all, love wins.
