Forest Therapy

October 13, 2017 Renny Events

‘Forest Bathing’ has been a recognized form of relaxation for decades now in Japan. Luckily in Canada we are very rarely far from an opportunity to partake in this simple form of therapy which reduces blood pressure and increases a sense of overall well-being. Northumberland County (north of Port Hope and Cobourg) offers numerous trails […]

New and Exciting

August 11, 2017 Renny Life

I’ve always enjoyed trying new things. Some would call it a restless spirit. It’s taken me on beautiful adventures around the world, allowed me to meet interesting people, led me to great jobs (everything from the military to private investigations to New Product Development to my current career as an author). I’ve been away from […]

Canada’s heritage, presence on the world stage and accomplishments are so often understated and go unnoticed – much like the people themselves. It’s one of the things I love about Canadians – we don’t need to wear sweat-suits or baseball caps made to look like the flag to proclaim who we are. A small pin […]

Reviews for After Paris and Family Business

January 16, 2017 Renny After ParisFamily BusinessHistorical Fiction

Here’s what my readers are saying about After Paris: “I just wanted to let you know that I’ve just finished “After Paris” and I absolutely loved it. You write beautifully it has to be said.  I thought Lisbeth’s character was very well crafted, so strong yet so vulnerable and self- doubting at times. The embodiment […]

April 27, 2016 Renny Book ChatHistorical Fiction

April is the month in which we remember the Battle of Vimy Ridge. This battle, which first saw Canada fight as the cohesive Canadian Expeditionary Force (4 Divisions) rather than as various units attached to the British Expeditionary Force, ran between April 9 and 12, and will ‘celebrate’ its 100th anniversary next year (1917). Although […]

The Value of Friendship

March 6, 2016 Renny Uncategorized

Apparently February 2016 was Friendship Month, although, bizarrely, August 7 will be Friendship Day. In any event, I missed realizing all of this because I was busy saying good-bye to a long-time friend Derek Harrington. The send-off was spectacular with days of story-telling and songs. He leaves behind a legacy that most of us would […]

There’s Something In The Air of Newfoundland That Truly Inspires

December 9, 2015 Renny Book ChatEvents

I’ve always known it; some of my favourite writers are from there – whether it’s Annie Proulx with The Shipping News, Wayne Johnston with The Colony of Unrequited Dreams, Michael Crummey with Sweetland or Michael Winter with Minister Without Portfolio, there’s no doubt about it – they have a […]
