He is a graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University (with an Honours English degree) and Centennial College (with a Book and Magazine Publishing diploma).

Harry lives with his wife and children – his creative collaborators – in a previously quiet neighbourhood in Southern Ontario.

Excerpt

I watched from the pocket of Aileen's uniform as the children walked down the ramp. "Where are their mummies and daddies?" I asked. "Still overseas," Aileen said. "England is being bombed in the war, so many families have sent their children to Canada, where they'll be safe." A band started to play on the dock and some of the children sang along. "There'll always be an England, and England shall be free. If England means as much to you as England means to me." But two of the children weren't singing. They looked lost and afraid. Aileen went over and introduced herself. "My name is Grace," replied the young girl in a soft voice. "And this is brother, William. He is five." Grace pointed to me. "Who's that?" "This is Teddy," Aileen said. William peeked his head out from behind his sister.
