About The Author
David Milton McGowan (D. M. McGowan) is a novelist who occasionally writes rhymes and songs. His stories generally contain Canadian themes since he believes his birth-land doesn’t receive the recognition it deserves for its contribution to the world. In addition the neighbors often receive denunciations that could be equally applied to Canada despite a benevolent reputation and only acceptance of that history might precipitate change.
He has been a cowboy, forest fire fighter, heavy equipment operator, farmhand, gardener, road musician and businessman. He has many years’ experience in the welding/fabrication industries and as a commercial driver. He has lived in several areas in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario and played music in much of North America. He and Karen are the proud seniors to four children, eight grand-children and two great grand-children
