In this fourth memoir, Unexpected Treasures – Running a Mental Health Non-profit, Rod describes with honesty, compassion and humour, the struggles of providing mental health services despite budget cuts, the 2008 global recession, and multiple other challenges.



Rod is a qualified Able Seaman, a journeyman boat builder, has a Master’s Degree with merit in Integrative Counselling Practice from the University of Derby, is a Registered Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner, a father of three, and an experienced dog-walker.

Still attracted to the ocean, he lives along the shores of beautiful Howe Sound with his partner Anna. His dog Fargo took him for walks between bouts of writing.
