More from “Triumph the Lion” — my new novel — on CJSF Radio

In “Triumph the Lion,” a Toronto-born safari ranger in South Africa makes a peculiar lion so famous tourists from around the world venture to the jungle to catch a glimpse of it. The lion becomes such an object of obsession, however, that some visitors arrive wanting much more than a photograph for their Facebook page. With a bounty suddenly on its head, the lion must struggle for survival while the man who made him a celebrity seeks to interfere with the plot to kill the animal. In his quest to do so, the ranger named Blu is joined by his African friend, Shamrock, and Maria, a visiting photographer from Canada who may be the one person in Kruger Park more interested in the man who made the lion a star than in the beast itself.

My new novel, “Triumph the Lion,” on CJSF Radio

Thanks to host KP Wee of “Smitten with the Written” for the opportunity to read from “Triumph the Lion,” my new novel. You can hear it as part of an interview on CJSF Radio (90.1 FM) in Vancouver from a couple of weeks ago. KP and I discussed “50 Mission Cap” and how the ugly subject of sexual abuse by athletic coaches has turned up again in the news because of the scandals at Penn State and Syracuse universities. We also talked about travel writing and writing tips for emerging writers before I read the first few pages of “Triumph the Lion.”
