Michael Musto says, “If there’s ever a museum for gay comic/actors navigating their way through show biz, Jason Stuart would have to curate it”. Everybody who knows Jason, knows he is hilarious, but not everybody knows that he has been a true pioneer in the worlds of stand-up and LGBTQ representation.
CFN – I was delighted to be asked to review W. Brett Wilson’s book “Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes”. For those of you who have watched “Dragon’s Den” you may be familiar with him. A highly successful business man and philanthropist, his principles for business should be taught to every
CFN – How We Lead covers past, present, and future, “we” being Canada as a whole— citizens, businesses, corporations, NGOs and “not just governments,” Clark insists. And, importantly, Canada’s reputation in the world. What kind of leadership, he asks, have we shown in a changing world over the

CFN – ‘The Perfect Mix’, a book of short stories written by local authors and published locally as well. There are 11 authors in all contributing 22 stories ranging in style from mystery and humour to romance. I had a preview of the book (actually I was editing it)
CFN – I just finished reading a delightful book, “A Lifetime of Small Adventures” by Bill Birnbaum. I am always interested in people’s adventures whether they be big or small. I admit I had a little problem getting into the essence of the book as what he speaks about as adventures when
Cornwall ON – Collateral Damage is A Father’s Day Collection of Mayhem. Needle Publishing’s first entry, in bust your face publishing, was TERMINAL DAMAGE. The challenge to their house authors then was that all the stories take place at an airport on the same day – when all hell breaks loose.
