john Mc Donald

Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada

Email: johngmcdonald@yahoo.ca

I live in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. I was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1944. I had an impoverished up-bringing-- one that lacked an education. I broke away from home at the early age of sixteen and never looked back. For some years I traveled in Europe making ends meet by any form of menial labor. In 1968 I arrived in Canada to work the mines of Thompson Manitoba. After, I went to work as a lumberjack. As the years moved on I got into the entertainment business as a singer guitar player. Later, not so long ago, I went back to school, well, really for the first time. I got my high school diploma,something that really was not in the cards for me. Among the subjects I took were keyboard and computer basics. I also learned where a period and comma should be applied; thus, kicking off my attempt as an aspiring writer.
