Enjoy reading What Mrs Molloy Taught Me here.
Ronald grew up in Scotland speaking two dialects. He spoke Scots until he went to the Morgan Academy in Dundee when he was five years old and mastered Standard English. His ability to speak both Scots and English helped him in the many of the part-time jobs he held as a child and as a teenager. He often did the shopping for older neighbours, he worked on farms picking raspberries, strawberries, blackcurrants and potatoes and laboured in forests limbing fallen trees. He was also employed on sheep farms in the Highlands and spent a summer fishing codling offshore from Peterhead on the Aberdeenshire coast.
Ronald and his wife Viviana live on the shores of Rice Lake in Ontario, Canada. He writes plays for the theatre and is the author of “Fortunate Isle, a Memoir of Tenerife” and “A Tenerife con Cariño”.
