Messer in 2002

FARMERS MARKET, published in 2013, is the author's first foray into crime, though with a humourous and satirical twist. The story is an exposť of so-called "farmers markets", markets that are often dysfunctional and engaged in deception, including those that are registered co-operative corporations.

 

What Messer
is most proud of:

Reading from The Sink: Last Days of Driving at the Leacock Festival, in 2003

Defending member rights in farmers market co-operatives
