Ever since grade school, teachers have encouraged me to try writing. An unwillingness to continue my education was followed by endless excuses for not attempting to put pen to paper.
It was not until one winter sojourn in the early 1980s that an idea came to mind and a dull pencil began to scrawl words on a wrinkled sheet of lined paper. "The Rabbit" took many years, all filled with stops and starts and jumbled thoughts, to eventually crawl out of its den and pose for the cover of this novel.
The edits, the rewrites, the frustration with computers, and the proof reads have come to an end. Yet the marketing part has barely begun, and I am not sure if I am up to it.
Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to read "When the Rabbit Jumps." I would enjoy hearing your comments, and will gladly answer any questions you might have as honestly as possible.
My motto is "Enjoy Life," please do...Allan
Allan Mowat never did like to work regularly. He could easily have lived the life of a hobo or beach bum. Combining his wanderlust, ability to relate with intriguing people of all ages, and an active imagination, Allan was able to finally complete his first novel.
