Writing in Progress






The view Don sees from his study as he writes


Don's study where he writes is a few metres from Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy, and twice each day he watches the world's highest tides carve the landscape beyond his window. It's no wonder, then, that he would eventually write a novel in which those tides play a major part in the action. Called Delusion Road, that novel is a thriller that takes place near where he lives, and HarperCollins will publish it in 2014.





Check out the power of the Bay of Fundy's amazing tides.
