Me and Ernest Hemingway

It’s uncanny, but it’s true, my life and that of Ernest Hemingway are inexplicably linked.

I lived in Key West for almost two years in the early 2000s and worked right around the corner from his house, with it’s three-toed cats. No big deal really.

But then when I went to Key West just last year on a (kind of) press trip, I ended up staying in the Southernmost House, where Hemingway was known to spend a night or two, and not only that, but in room 107, the Hemingway Room.

Again nothing entirely unusual. Or is it?

Because then, I moved to Toronto and am now, by the grace of God (Hemingway?) working for the Toronto Star, who the man himself worked for in the 1920s.

Now all I need to do is write a couple of best-selling novels based on my journalistic endeavours and the parallels are complete.

Any excuse to post a couple of Key West pics.
