Like so many others, the Sundog discovered a need to write in Grade School, but try to find the time?! In University, he made a conscious choice -- be a writer, not an actor, which was another popular delusion of the moment. But then, as it does, life happened. He became a guerilla writer, publishing a number of short stories, poems and even two books eventually, one of Jason Midnight short stories and one of poetry, stealing time to scribble in the rare moments not committed willingly to marriage and to being a Dad; not-so-willingly to his various day jobs; and completely unwillingly to surviving serious illnesses, culminating in emergency open heart surgery. Surviving that event made clear to him that if he had something to say, he'd better damn well say it.

     Told by his doctor to retire from his day job at 54, with the support of his wife he embarked on a new commitment to the literary life. Experience taught him by the hard road that there is more to life than worrying about the next paycheque. No more lying around on near-death beds thinking "If only ... ".

     The Sundog hopes to drum up interest in his new projects by publishing a regular series of past works on Booksie profiling his most successful character: Jason Midnight. Who is Jason Midnight? Well, imagine ...

Winnipeg — The Big Mosquito — Winnipeg — If you don’t know it, you’ve never walked an empty downtown city street on a Sunday afternoon ...


Winnipeg — Home of The Midnight Detective Agency — Home of Jake Fincowicz who can change his name on a whim to Jason Midnight and spend the rest of his life living up to that mistake. Where a Private Eye can put a sign on his door saying “No Case Or Solution Too Ridiculous To Be Considered” ... and they aren’t.


Jason Midnight’s Winnipeg — where he can hear the wilted strains of the Jarvis Avenue Allstars belting out cool swing on an even colder night from The Pungent Onion Club as the girls strip right down to the bone on stage again, where a dame can get down so deep into your head she can rewrite your own internal soundtrack, where the puck never crosses the goal line in a hockey game without the right hoodoo on it, where everyone might be out to kill you if you only knew, where the hookers run with demons and the demons haul you off into your own inner fractal in the alley behind the bar on the wrong sort of night, where the Devil runs the only serious betting game in town, and where certain rich women can be had for a chocolate bar — the right chocolate bar. Winnipeg.


Jason Midnight’s home — Jason Midnight’s horror — Jason Midnight’s Delight.

Hope you enjoy.
