On Saturday, June 2, Forster’s Book Garden in Bolton, Ontario, Canada, held a book launch for the novel, Flowers of the Forest. To say that it was successful would be an understatement. We were in danger of running out of books, and I brought 40 of them. Ian Law, from the Uxbridge Legion Pipes and Drums was on hand to serenade the patrons and play the tune “Flowers of the Forest”.DSC01820

The prolific author, John Steckley (seen in the picture above on the right) made a celebrity appearance and entertained with his wit and wisdom.DSC01818

Rock Star bassist, Bill Prosser even showed up to add to the occasion.DSC01811

By the end of the day, my right hand was growing weary from signing the books for the readers. I would like to thank Forster’s Book Garden for hosting the event, Glenn Carley for hosting the post-launch BBQ and all those who helped make this event a huge success.DSC01815


Posted by Flowers of the Forest - The Pride of Our Land

I am a retired Math Professor and now a budding author. Who would have thought? I was born in Toronto and grew up in a family of 5 boys and 1 girl. I went to Winchester Street Public School up to grade 8 and then attended Jarvis Collegiate Institute, up to grade 13. After high school I attended the University of Toronto and graduated with 2 degrees (BA honours and BEd). Following was a career in teaching, including 34 years at Humber College in Toronto, teaching Mathematics and Statistics. I managed to coauthor one textbook, an introductory Stats book. I am married to the beautiful Beth and have a great loving son named Jonathan McLaren Law. Oh yes, I am a lifelong Toronto Maple Leafs fan. I lived happily in Bolton in beautiful Caledon ON for 31 years, and I am now living in Burlington ON and loving it too. The book is available on Amazon.ca, Chapters - Indigo and Barnes & Noble.


  1. Richard, I ended up buying an e-book version of Flowers of the Forest, which suited my travel plans. However, would like to get a signed hard copy from you if possible such time as we may meet.
