Dave Cameron began his writing life as a journalist, and his profiles and essays have appeared in several publications, including Reader’s Digest, the Walrus and Cottage Life.#Dave does some of his writing at a family cottage on the shores of Lake Huron. The century-old building is falling down in a charming way, and its many nooks and shadowy crannies are home to many, many critters. Spiders and mice are quite comfortable there. Squirrels stash food in the roof. There’s a hole in the wall by the front door that makes a perfect nest for the very small and very loud house wren. The cottage, is, really, their place. Fortunately, none of these creatures seem to mind when humans drop by.#Dave spends most of the year in Hamilton, Ontario, with his partner and their son.
