Jerry's changed career paths many times, each one leading him to new challenges, discoveries and relationships. There are those who call him a serial monogamist because he's been married four times, but he prefers to think he was seeking his soul mate, and he found her in 2003 when he re-met Joan and the perfect match was evident to both of them.
Farmer, miner, teacher, pilot, entrepreneur, politician; Jerry's been all of those, and more. Those were his public personas, professional faces. But the real Jerry was kept close inside his heart until he began to write and that is when his soul escaped to frolic deep inside him. That Jerry appears in his writing within the characters and their wild, reckless adventures or their poetic memories of love lived and lost.
Like Jerry, Joan has explored many careers, from secretary, (hated that), teacher, counselor, consultant and writer. She never felt settled until she began to write, and that resulted in the birth of her biography, The Raw Bold Truth. Also like Jerry, she has been married several times, (3) and finally found her soul mate in Jerry.
Together, Jerry and Joan love to explore their retirement by traveling, spending warm summers in Northern Saskatchewan at their little cabin and sharing a small office where their imaginations are loosed upon pages of writing that sometimes become books.
