Jeff Pinkney

Jeff Pinkney likes to be out in his canoe or on his mountain bike on forest trails. He holds an English degree from Trent University, is a former newspaper columnist and currently works as a business advisor in Peterborough, Ontario. Jeff's Echoes, Soapstone Porcupine and Soapstone Signs, draw on Jeff's experiences while traveling as a development consultant in Canada's James Bay Frontier, where he acquired a deep appreciation for the people and the landscape. Jeff is an emerging poet, writer and an amateur stone carver. He and his wife, Leslie, share a brood of three story-loving daughters. For more information, visit www.jeffpinkney.com.
