Ronald Mackay visits with us again to catch us up on his most recent work. Ronald spent his earliest years in his grandmother’s home in rural Scotland in the 1940s. Like most folks in that region, he spoke both Scots and English and intuitively learned when it was appropriate to use one or the other. He was educated first at the Morgan Academy in Dundee and later, at both Aberdeen and Edinburgh universities. He was awarded a doctorate by l’ Université de Montréal for his educational research in the Northwest Territories. Like many Scots, he has made a career in countries far from his native home. He undertook development projects in education and agriculture, in many parts of the world, and has farmed in the UK, the Canary Islands, Mexico, Canada, Chile and Argentina. In 2012, he turned to more creative writing when he and his wife, Viviana, returned to Canada from Argentina.
