Something we take for granted in the 905, is how unique a setting our own backyard can be. It can be a terrific backdrop to our imagination and whisk us away on adventures. One local Burlington author has done exactly that.
Doug Cockell is a local author who has written a trilogy of supernatural mysteries, all taking place in the Niagara Escarpment. His novels: Requiem for Thursday, Requiem for Noah and most recently Requiem for Mary Mac are all currently on the Amazon Bestsellers list. Requiem for Thursday was a semi-finalist for the 2020 Booklife Prize Fiction contest.
He joins us today to discuss how the 905 has driven his inspiration for his writing, and what makes it such a potent backdrop for his stories.
