THE DEFENDER: Ian Adams
Morgan Ian Adams is an award-winning newspaper reporter and editor, and author of the novelette, Glory, A Lamentable Condition of Affairs. He has also worked at various times as a radio news announcer, cable television playback operator, roofer, and the best job he ever had – a gofer on the Hollywood movie, A Long Kiss Goodnight, only because Geena Davis flashed him a smile.
When not in front of a computer screen, he can usually be found — in the summer, that is — in the dragon boat with the Collingwood Dragon Boat and Canoe Club, or skimming along the surface of Georgian Bay, desperately trying to stay dry while paddling a C-1 sprint canoe. He presently resides in Collingwood, Ontario, with his wife, a cat and two dogs.
