Frank Baron

Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada

I'm a 56 year-old father of 2 boys. Graduated with a BA in Journalism but except for a short 2 year stint in the 70s as a weekly columnist, never "journalized."

Had a smidge of success freelancing in the 70's. Smidge = a few magazine pieces and the aforementioned column. Smidge also = couldn't pay bills and still eat once in a while.

Quit writing for nearly 20 years while I paid some bills and ate. Sold my business in 1999, have been living off the (now-diminished) proceeds and writing full time since.

My first book, What Fish Don't Want You to Know, was published in August 2003. It's a humourous how-to about, yes, you guessed it, fishing.

I recently contributed two essays to an anthology assembled by Jenna Glatzer of Absolute Write. It's called Stories of Strength. All proceeds are earmarked for charitable organizations dealing with disaster relief.

I've also write a free, irregularly-sent emailed humour column. If interested in sampling, send a mail to:
