As Syd explains, "This memoir was written in 2008. It is too long. Rather than edit it, I will present it in two parts."
You can read Part 1 of THE DÉNOUEMENT OF VINCENT B. here.
Part 2 will follow within the next few days.
I was born and raised in a small mountain town in southeastern British Columbia, Canada. This inspiring, protective, and nurturing environment was important to my growth and paths in life. I spent twenty-five years in education at schools and colleges. I followed with a decade building and operating a ten-room bed-and-breakfast inn; and then, a few years as an assisted living operator. My wife and I retired to the Atlantic coast of Uruguay in 2007. It was here that I finally made time in my life for writing and art and now only think of myself as a writer or an artist. I like this change a lot.
My writings have appeared in many places, including all previous editions of Robert Fear´s anthologies. I hope this story will be accepted for a future anthology. The story has never been shared publicly until now.
