About the Book

My Life in the Navy Reserves is a true to life account of my many adventures with the Canadian Armed Forces. This book takes you on an odyssey of adventures and misadventures, through my eyes. The stories told here are compilations of my 10 year experience.

Find out what it is like to go through boot camp, fight fires and sail on the ocean. Throughout the book I describe moments of humour, sadness and patriotism. There are times when I have run-ins with my superiors. Through this journey, you will feel what it would be like to be in my place.

It is my hope, that through my descriptions and details the reader will be able to put themselves into the moment.

About the Author

At the time this book was written, I worked at the Shell Scottford Refinery in Fort Saskatchewan as a pipe fitter. I am still active in the reserves having passed 10 years of my service on May 04, 2002. This book chronicles my adventures in that first decade. I had thought about committing these stories to paper in the past, but now there were a few factors guiding me. I want to have a written record for the days I can't remember them. My two children are too young to enjoy my stories right now, so when they are older they will have this book.

I currently live in Alberta with my lovely wife Kellie and my children Keegon and Shayna. When I'm not working for the Reserves, I work as a plumber, local union #488. In my spare time I enjoy writing and spending time with my family.
