Had a great time last night as a guest on the Rogers TV show Lemon-Aid, with host Lorraine Sommerfeld. That’s the friendly cop, Clint Stibbe, with us.

Lorraine and I used to work together when I was her editor at the Toronto Star – ah, good times…

It’s show #0198 and is also available on his website, at my blog, as a subscription on iTunes and on your mobile devices via Stitcher. Great chat!


Signing in Ottawa



Ever wonder what it’s like to sign 400 books? Phew! I’m not complaining, though…

The last book I signed, I included a special message. It’s the Golden Ticket book. If you got it, let me know!

Off to Ottawa

I’m in Ottawa this weekend, ready to give the opening address at the Annual General Meeting of the CAA, which sponsored much of my drive last summer.

The CAA has bought 400 copies of Canada’s Road to give to its delegates, so I’ll be spending some time on Sunday signing them all. A writer can have worse problems, you know.



Get Stuphed on Monday




Had a great chat this morning about the Trans-Canada with Peter Anthony Holder, host of The Stuph File. It’ll be going live on Monday, so check here then to listen in.


Getting away to Monaco



I’ve been away for a few days, visiting Monaco and the Grand Prix with the Infiniti Red Bull team. Want to know what it was like? Here’s a wonderful and irreverent story by my friend Neil Pollock, who wrote about it for Yahoo.com. What a writer!

CBC’s Fresh Air

I was interviewed about Canada’s Road this week by Karen Gordon for the CBC’s weekend morning radio show in Ontario.

“I thought your book was going to be about cars, but it’s not – it’s about people,” she said to me before we began.

She was happy to stray off the script and we had a great chat that you can hear at www.cbc.ca/freshair. I’ll put up a more direct link straight to the interview once it’s posted.

Fame in RV West magazine

Here’s the first media story about Canada’s Road, in RV West magazine.

A friend of mine told me on Facebook that I look very handsome in the photo, but I pointed out that pretty much anyone can look good standing next to Captain Dildo.

First sighting!

Here’s the first copy of my new book spotted out in the wild, at a Walmart in Trenton, Ontario. Have you seen it at a bookstore? Send me a photo and I’ll publish it.

Books across Canada

Mailed out the first bunch of signed books today to people who helped me along the way across Canada. Addresses from Newfoundland to B.C.! Couldn’t send many though because I don’t have many books yet – still waiting for the second edition to arrive at the warehouse.
