Lillian has fond memories of visiting family in Ridgecrest (CA) where her grandparents resided until they moved on to the next plane. Lillian's family also lived in Nevada in the Tuscarora and Elko areas for several years. Nearly 30 years ago, Lillian's family moved to Canada, but many of their friends and family members still reside in the states of California, Nevada and Oregon. Dave was born and raised in Kelowna (BC) where he met and married Lillian 15 years ago.
Between the two, Dave and Lillian are authors, poets, photographers and book reviewers - their work has appeared in a variety of publications around the globe. Lillian's poetry book, Towards Understanding - a collection of 120 poems, was released in 2005. The first 5 years of their Column, Trash Talk, was developed into a book by the same name and released in 2004.
