My sons read all my books once they were old enough. My youngest, who is now 15, used Buffalo Jump as the basis for a school project this year, which I found pretty cool. It has been hard at times to balance work and family. I wrote most of Buffalo Jump between five and seven in the mornings because I still had a full-time corporate writing job and it was the only free time I could find. That meant I was often too tired to do some of the things I’d have liked to do with the boys and my wife. Happily, since I left corporate life ten years ago to write full time, I’ve been able to spend more time with everyone.
Your work in progress is set in Montreal in 1950-51. So, something new. Can you tell us something about it?
