Bloggers PhotoI was born in Flowing Well, Saskatchewan, Canada, as the third in a family of ten children. I grew up raising farm animals and younger siblings and always longed for solitude and a chance to think.

After high school, I worked in the mines in the Yukon, Alaska, and British Columbia. While there, the First Nation people named me "Crossfox" because of my long, red hair with the tips bleached blond by the sun. Thus, the name I have chosen for this site.

While burning magazines, for heat in the cold North, I read of "opportunities of work in Southland colleges." I left the North, never to be cold again.

As an elementary school teacher and administrator my life was full and busy, in addtion to having the joy of being the father of four wonderful children.

In 1986, I retired and began a second career as an almond farmer near Chico, CA. I was even fortunate enough to discover and patent my own almond variety during that time.

I have now retired, again, and have returned to the writing I love. I have published my own book of poetry and hope to make many meaningful acquaintences on this site.
