Books!! I'm all about books, reading, writing, collecting, loving.
E-books, books in print, books in dreams.
Books in bed, in the bathroom, at the table while I eat.
My name is Bobby, and I'm addicted to books.
Whole walls in my house are covered in them, and my Kindle has hundreds more. I remember learning to read, and feeling as if an entire new universe had just opened up for me. Dick, Jane, Sally and Spot, does anyone else remember them, the characters in those long ago primers?
Nowadays, I live alone--with frequent visits from my grandkids. And I also have their rabbits, Skittles and Minty, in residence on my back porch. At the moment, Minty is undergoing a false pregnancy (bless the false part!) She's pulling out her chest fur and when she runs out of that, turns her nesting urge on poor long suffering Skittles' chest. We figure she's slightly deranged.
I spend a lot of time on the computer, creating, and some time each day walking, which is good for my hips and my imagination. I'm a long time vegetarian, and I love to cook. One wall in my kitchen is covered in cookbooks.
I live in the little coal mining town where I was born--Sparwood, B.C., high in the Canadian Rockies. I moved back here eight years ago, after many adventures, some of them documented in HOW NOT TO RUN A B&B.
I'm so humbly grateful to all of you who buy my books. Readers and fans are essential to a professional writer. Thank you! And please don't stop reading.
I won't stop writing. I plan to finish the last page of my last book on my last day here on this green planet.
Books, laughter, love--these three are the essentials of my happy life.
