I was 15 when I realized what I wanted to do with my life.  I had spent a few months and filled three 30-page scribblers, leftover from when I was in elementary school, with a handwritten fantasy story that began out of boredom before realizing that it wasn’t going anywhere.  But by that time I was hooked; not on the story, but on the telling.

My name is Colin Davis. I’m from Parrsboro, a small town in Nova Scotia.  I studied journalism for four years at St. Thomas University in Fredericton, New Brunswick.  I chose journalism because I thought I would learn how to write.  What I learned was how to tell a story.  Turns out it’s not the same thing.

My goal for the future is to be a story teller.  Right now that means writing novels.  But that’s only one way to tell a story, and I know a few others.  I can take pictures, I can shoot and edit video, and I cut together audio recordings.  On this portfolio are examples of all those things.

I’m also a musician.  I play guitar and mandolin.  I’m in two bands, both of which have albums and one of which plays shows regularly around Toronto.

I moved to Toronto, to earn a paycheque and to write, preferably both at the same time.  I’m working on a novel, one that has been evolving over the last several years to the point where I now think that it’s worth reading. It’s called Adaxial, and the first chapter is available free here.

    I was interested in your story on Kerry Martins of griddly games…he may have come out of ‘hiding’ and is in vancouver, bc; he is working with his son apparently contracting patios/decks…he just conned me out of building my deck – took the deposit of $6500.00 and now has disappeared – can’t get a hold of him…i think it is the same guy you have written about…would be interested in speaking to you further so we can get this guy before he turns up on someone else’s doorstep…
