About Richard Mousseau

Richard Mousseau; Bio

Author of literary fiction, story poetry, play writing and adventure stories based in Northern Ontario. A farmer raising, chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, beef and has a close relationship with horses and goats that roam freely. www.moosehidebooks.com

What does the experience sixty odd years of life present when a person is asked to describe one’s own self? There are the life adventures, successes, downfalls, turmoil and a cluttered mind of memories to consider. One could brag, and linger on materialistic items of praise and the luxuries and possessions gained, yet, all of that is of little importance when viewing one’ own reflection in a mirror. Youth is gone, and those weathered wrinkles and greying strands of hair demand that consideration be given to living the moment and to the virtue of one’s developed talent.

What is most important to me, as time ages facial features to a transcript of who I am, is the written word and a farm-life venture. A true writer is concerned about the stories and words penned, and a livid imagination that sometimes becomes intertwined with real life. Having over fifty titles ranging from adventures, cowboy poetry and theatre plays, I continue to day-dream about the next story adventure. Presenting these projects to receptive readers and in turn, they derive pleasure that runs the gamut from tears to anger and ultimate satisfaction of enjoyment in having read the story, is my reward, and possibly a legacy.

Associating with farm stock of cows, goats, geese, pigs, chickens, and past visions of horse companions, I have plenty of time to dream and use my imagination upon a next story, for farm animals do not bother with idle chit-chat. Living in Northern Ontario, Canada; my stories and adventures reflect the lifestyle, the people and subject matter of my home area. Novels of bush adventures, lives of a steel town residents, farm life and its drama and sometimes humour is conveyed. Plays bring Canadian persons to life. Cowboy poetry brings out my alter ego, ‘Mr. Cheeks-Too-Soft’ the old cowboy who recites the drama and humoristic life of a make-believe cowboy’s life.

            The reader may not grasp the essence of who I am by what I have rambled on about in this short Bio; though, I am confident that the reader of my various works will notice my character and the substance of my being popping up within the stories.
