From the Author

2012 was spent writing Moose Road - a Canadian Tragedy.   Here in my home town of Elliot Lake, Ontario, Canada we had recently suffered great losses due to a mall collapse which killed two people, injured others and of course deprived many of their jobs and businesses.

Moose Road is not about this mall collapse however my frame of mind while writing this story was influenced by all that was going on around me.   And of course an Inquiry was happening here in the real world and I realized the importance to many of placing blame for what had occurred.

This was the bedrock of Moose Road - a Canadian Tragedy.  My thought was what if no one is to blame?  What if it were an accident.  And, indeed, on Moose Road there is the accident between the snow plow and the school bus. There is an investigation; an inquiry and judgment is made.   But what happens once this decision is made by the Judge is what shocks the small Town of Mansey and fills headlines across the nation.

I put my heart and soul into the characters who live along Moose Road.  They became very real to me and I sometimes had a hard time keeping up with them.

I hope you enjoy the story.

Thank you Alan Black for the 5 star review on Amazon.

Austin has written a not so simple story, weaving the lives of multiple residents on Moose Road around one tragic accident that leaves no one on the road or in the nearby Northern Ontario Canada town untouched. The subplots tug at our desire to comfort some residents of this town with a hug and those same subplots yank at our exasperation switch yelling at us to slap sense into some of these same people. The main story cries for our attention and gets it.

Austin is able to show us one tragedy from every point of view except the moose. The characters are so real that I wonder what Austin's neighbors thought about having their secret lives dragged into the public view. I started this book just to have something to read in between my own chores. However... to heck with the chores, I finished the book in one sitting.
