What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
There is nothing better on a summer’s night than the sound of horse’s hooves as they hit the track surface, the wings fold, and then horses race.

I became involved with harness racing through my father’s side of the family. My grandfather could be found at the mutuals making his bet. My father and brothers owned and trained standardbred horses. They have been active in standardbred racing business their entire lives.

I began grooming horses at fourteen years old when I found employment at Greenwood Raceway a horse racing facility in Toronto. Then it was off to work in the Ottawa area when I was fifteen.

When I left home I was too young to be afraid. I wanted some fun and I really liked getting to work with horses. Living on the track grounds in the past I faced a few challenges. My youth living on the horse track was memorable. My experiences with the harness world as a young adult is the more fictional than fact romance story No Reins.
