Port Dalhousie Home (Sotheby’s)



Rising prominently into the sky, the Queen Anne-inspired home rests peacefully atop a hillside waterfront overlooking majestic Lake Ontario. The lake view is awe-inspiring, a beautiful and serene landscape that provides a tranquility commonly associated with the picturesque community of Port Dalhousie. With the slow, lapping of water against the rocks below, it’s nearly impossible not to be emotionally swept away by the delicacy of the visuals.

A step inside the home, with its high ceilings and wide and commodious rooms, is a grandiose experience.  There is a seductiveness that envelops one as they enter in through the Victorian-Inspired double front doors. It’s intoxicating in that it stirs up a curiosity to want to delve further into seeking out and discovering more of what the house has to offer. Covering well over 10,000 square feet in finished living space, the entire house is ample and vast. Ripe with opulent texture, the house offers a little bit of everything.

Built in 1998, and renovated in 2009, the home is a feast for the eyes. Limestone and Cherry Hardwood flooring, a library with floor to ceiling mahogany bookcases and cabinetry, authentic plaster mouldings throughout the entirety of the house, and breathtaking scenic views of Lake Ontario from multiple vantage points (such as the Conservatory behind the house that overlooks the Great Lake) are just a few of the features that help highlight the magnitude and richness of the home.

Yet the house never feels overwhelming in its presentation or style. Though consisting of numerous rooms, spiral staircases and a myriad of windows, the house is welcoming. There is a distinct personality present, a definitive identity empowering it that provides a feeling of warm sanctuary.

Situated directly beside the home is the Coach House, an exquisite structure that truly compliments its neighbour. Built in 2005, the Victorian-designed dwelling is a wondrous sight to behold. With floor to ceiling custom windows in the living room, vaulted ceilings and stunning wooden arches, the Coach House proudly celebrates its sumptuous appeal.

It is a finely-detailed home with dazzling, dream-like expressiveness throughout its composition. With marvellous views of the lake, complimented by a pool and a concrete-pillared Open Air Structure in the rear grounds, the house’s attention to detail is astonishing. The use of colour, texture and design is a work of art, a picturesque fantasy come to life.

As was the case with the Queen-Anne home, the Coach House is very individualistic in its personality. Venturing from room to room, the patterns and styles are distinct, and revel in their ability to articulate something robust and bold. Like a fine wine, the house is daring and captivating.

Both homes embody personal, unmistakable spirits in their physical formations, and proudly display it in the heart of their Port Dalhousie neighbourhood.

The Desolate Journey

Attacked and left for dead in the desert by an unknown entity, a man awakens to find himself in an enigmatic new world brimming with unholy chaos.

Where every imaginable evil can and does exist, this desolate wilderness relishes in the destruction of humanity.

With little understanding, the man is forced to flee for his life as hundreds of anonymous assassins stalk him through this vast land.

With no one to trust, the man must rely on the little resources he possesses, and to come to some sort of understanding about many unknown questions.

Why is this happening to him?

Where and what is this place?

And who is in control of it?

The answers lie within The Alternative Wasteland…

Why I Write (Into My Own Mind)

Alternative Wasteland was released in 2018, and I couldn’t have asked for a better response from readers. The books have been selling at a steady rate, and have inspired me to immediately start work on a new novel.

Alternative Wasteland dealt with many subjects within the genre of the suspense/psychological thriller (with horror elements incorporated along the way). Now, as a result of a couple of people inquiring why I choose this genre to dictate the chaos of my imaginative thoughts, I’ve decided to write a quick response.

I’ve always been intrigued with the darker elements this world has to offer. Now, I don’t mean I relish evil and destruction and chaos, but I do find the nature of these subject matters intriguing to explore from a psychological standpoint.

My stories may be dark in a superficial sort of way but I use the genre as a means to study the nature of the mind and to delve further into the thematic heart of a story (usually through the thoughts and actions of my flawed characters). In a lot of ways, my “thriller” stories are merely metaphors used to analyze deeper issues that concern and affect me. There is always more than meets the eye when it comes to my tales (well, I hope the reader can see that).

When my stories study the nature of fear, I am using it to both entertain and to explore the nature of what frightens us on a day-to-day basis. Many of the thoughts and fears from the characters within the stories are my own thoughts and fears. My daily anxieties about life and what it may hold for me. In other words, my stories don’t set out to be fear-inducing purposely…it just happens to be the genre that  allows me to express myself in the most straightforward sort of way.

The nature of one’s fight against the corrupting forces of this world is something every individual can relate to. (Good vs. Evil has been an element struggled with since the beginning of time.)

I’ve always been interested in the way the mind works. The way if can lift us up and the way it can pull us down…the power of it and, as I have said on numerous occasions, sometimes our greatest enemy. If one looks into many of my stories in Alternative Wasteland, I’m hoping they will be able to comprehend what I am truly trying to convey.

I also leave a few questions unanswered in my writing. I don’t do this to confound the reader but rather to let them explore the possibilities of certain outcomes themselves. Life isn’t always about receiving definitive answers. Things go unsolved, things go unanswered. Secrets and mysteries exist all around us. I believe in the power of the imagination, and I enjoy when others use it to its fullest capabilities.

Novels by Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Nick Cutter (just to name a few) have influenced my writing in a profound way, and have been better teachers of the writing craft than anything I ever learned in school (I hate to admit that and I apologize to all of my English teachers). Because in this modern-day, the rules of writing seem slippery, at best. Heck, Cormac McCarthy hates using punctuation because he believes it dirties the page (this even includes quotation marks for dialogue passages).

But I’ve also been influenced by The Hardy Boy books I read countless times as a child (in fact, one of the story titles in Alternative Wasteland is a flat-out homage to a Hardy Boy book), and movies and television shows viewed throughout my life. It’s amazing what stays with you as you get older, and somehow 20 years later comes to make an appearance in one of my stories.

I write the way I want to write because it makes me happy doing so. I understand that I won’t please everyone, but if I tried to do that then I would never write anything at all. Everyone will have their opinions, and I’m fine with that.

But in the end, it’s what I was put on this planet to do, and I will continue to do it until I can’t…or  if the story of Jack Torrance inspires me just…a…little…too…much…

Thank you to everyone for their support throughout the years, and I hope I can continue to entertain you for years to come!


The mind of a writer is a fascinating and frightening place to travel to, at times. I enjoy it, immensely.
