Harvey Sawler was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, but has lived most of his adult life in Atlantic Canada. He began his career as a newspaper journalist covering such diverse stories as the Pierre Trudeau 1974 campaign train and the 1975 double homicide of two City of Moncton police officers. He has gone on to become a seasoned publicist and a leading Canadian tourism consultant. He has written sixteen books, including three novels and twelve non-fiction works, highlighted by Twenty-First Century Irvings and Last Canadian Beer – The Moosehead Story, and a series of biographies, including Frank McKenna – Beyond Politics. The themed biography, On the Road with Dutch Mason (co-authored with fellow blues musician David Bedford), was premiered as a musical production at the 2018 Charlottetown Festival. Harvey lives at Bellevue Cove, Prince Edward Island, with his partner, Charlotte Stewart. Visit him anytime at www.harveysawler.com.
