About the Author

Lawrence Pierce grew up in Missouri and Texas and currently lives on Hornby Island, BC. His career of fixing things started at age 9, and continued through high school, with a variety of English sports cars, which needed constant attention. During the late 1960's he lived in San Francisco, and was a journeyman mechanic at a Volkswagen dealership in the East Bay. In the 70's he tried farming, without much success, except to learn more about fixing his machinery, which constantly broke down. The summer of 1982 found him in Whitehorse, Yukon, repairing any vehicle that got that far on the Alaska Highway. During the last 23 years, he spent his weekends fixing things, and renovating several houses. During the day, he was a litigation lawyer in downtown Vancouver, specializing in personal injury and disability insurance claims, representing people denied by insurance companies. He is now an organic farmer, with a small vineyard, and 3 acres of blueberries. He grows grapes, makes wine, runs the winery, and fixes things.
