My name is Rod Fraser. I grew up in a small village in rural Ontario. During my working life, I earned my living as a self-employed chartered accountant. I am now retired. To keep busy, I read widely, walk regularly, and write the book reviews and articles for this blog. Woodcarving,  and coffee with friends, are other great pastimes. Retirement has been good for me; you should give it a try.

Over the years, I have written many magazine and newspaper articles, client newsletters and two family histories.
