About Ian Allan Burnett:
Ian Allan Burnett is a first generation Canadian of Scottish descent. Born in Prince Edward Island. He was raised in a newspaper publishing family. Stories were something that he grew up with and loved. His family had a cottage on the East River as it was called then. It was a place of wonder and magic. Not because of all the fine things it had, but for all the things it did not have. I think they would best be described as rustic.
There were two cottages, in reality, one was considered his father’s and the other was considered his father’s brothers. Ian’s father had four brothers; one was lost in World War II. The front porch of the cottage was screened in, and his favorite memories were formed there. Especially from those rainy nights that his father, mother, friends, and relatives would be there playing games and telling stories from their own life experiences. The stories ranged from wartime experiences to where the moonshine still, was to have been, including the moonshiners that ran the still for that matter, or at least according to the stories.
Some stories were funny, some were sad, some were downright scary, and he loved hearing every one of them as often as they were told.
Ian’s life is a montage of experiences and professions. From newspaper publisher to soldier, from a salesman to a mortgage broker. He now has a chance to do what he has always wanted to do, and that is to be a writer of his own stories, ones that can be shared through his books with others.
Ian is married, has a wife and three children, one grandchild and more on the way. He now lives in Belleville Ontario, which is on the Bay of Quinte.
