Before their retirement, Nancy was an early childhood educator and Dan an auditor with the Office of the Auditor General of Canada. Both wrote professional articles and books but greatly enjoyed telling stories, first to their children and then to their grand-children. A series of bed-time stories led to the creation of their first book, Railroad of Courage, a work of youth fiction, published by Ronsdale Press in 2017.
Their second work, Saint Michael’s Residential School: Lament & Legacy, a book for adult readers, will be published by Ronsdale Press in the fall of 2020.
When Nancy was asked what it is like to co-author books, she said it is a bit like parallel parking. Forward and back until it’s just right!
