As a journalist for thirty years I've been lucky enough to live and work professionally in London, England, Washington, D.C., Florence, Italy, and Toronto, Canada, where I now live. During that time I've written for numerous magazines and newspapers, and have also done broadcast work. My major focus has been business, the economy, and international trade, but I've also written about politics and entertainment. As the author of more than a dozen books I won the National Business Book Award for Who Killed Confederation Life? and the Canadian Authors Association award in history for the #1 best-seller, The Eatons: The Rise and Fall of Canada's Royal Family.
