burton-janesI am the veritable “Jack of all trades, master of none.” Since graduating from high school in the early 1970s, I have worked as an ordained minister, night watchman, librarian, reporter, researcher, museum director, archivist, book reviewer, and judge for the Word Awards. I presently work as a live and online instructor, and a freelance editor and writer. In my “spare” time, I read anything I can get my hands on. I am married to the former Sherry Chaulk (I like to refer to her as “a piece of chaulk”), a cosmetician. We live in Bay Roberts. Our daughter, Krista, is dating a Chris, and our son, Chris, is dating a Krysta.

  1. Hi Burton –
    A few years since we were last in contact, maybe as long ago as the Encyclopedia days in the 1990s. These days I work for Gerald Penney Associates (archaeological consultants). Gerry is also a pretty rapid book collector and recently asked me about a book you co-authored “Who is that Man? about Tommy Toomishey. I offered to presume upon our acquaintance to ask if you had any idea where one (or preferably two) copies could be obtained.Meanwhile, hope all is well with you. It certainly seems as though you are keeping busy, which to my mind is one of the keys to happiness.
