Michael Winter

Michael Winter is the author of two collections of stories and four novels. He grew up in Newfoundland and now lives in the Bloor/Dufferin area of Toronto. The salt fish is better here. While working on a non-fiction account of the Newfoundland regiment during World War One, he managed to build a shed -- and he still has ten fingers. The first harbinger of doom the Newfoundland regiment encountered (when it joined the nine-mile long Canadian convoy heading towards southern English ports) was four or five dead horses floating past their ship every day. The Canadians had on board seven thousand horses.
