Join me on my blog to read stories and poems from talented writers in Southern Ontario. If you are a writer in your spare time or are wondering how to get your work recognized, send your stories or poems in a word document, Times New Roman 12 space for a chance to be published. Stories up to 1500 words or so. Longer works to be published would be presented over two or more weeks. Micro stories are to be presented by various authors in groups of two or more.

The material will be refreshed every two weeks, meaning the website will be under construction for an hour or so, so keep visiting us and include a short bio if you haven’t been published here before.

You will always retain your copyright and International submissions are also welcome.

Join Peter for his book launch and signing on March 19th, 2:00-5:00

Location: Past Glories of Toad Hollow, 78 John St., Orangeville

Peter’s profile can be found in “Meet the Authors”


“A William Fox Adventure is a slick, globe-trotting adventure that involves the RCMP and FBI chasing the Foo Dog Triad operating in Hong Kong, mainland China, and New York City. Like Tracy and Kevin Steptoe, a Mi’kmaq lawyer, the gangsters are after the ancient Chinese treasures.” …Amazon.ca
