Writer – Bill Olsen
Bill was born very young, and grew up in British Columbia. He is married to one wife, has two grown children, and now resides in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, where he and his wife pastor Life Church Fort Saskatchewan.
Bill has travelled extensively as a Recording Artist/Song Writer, Worship Leader, and Itinerant Speaker. He’s a player of fine guitars, and has several other vocations… and, he is apparently easily distracted, as well. One of his passions is to motivate people to move from existence to living full lives, and to show how ordinary people can have a huge impact on society.
Writer – Brian Mason
Brian Mason is a native of the ‘hills’ of North Carolina, born in Hendersonville in 1982 and having only recently moved to Alberta, Canada in 2007. An alumni of Appalachian State University, Brian followed his passion for history by obtaining a Bachelors Degree in Archaeology in 2004. As a minister’s son, Brian was raised with a strong commitment to his community and played an integral part early on as a volunteer youth minister and substitute teacher, starting at the age of 17. Brian developed and found a passion for writing when he was only ten-years-old, and as the family historian took the opportunity to write for Over Easy, Please, as a chance to get the family stories on paper. Brian is known best for his catch phrase when asked about details of his life: “I’m like an open book; unless I decided to rip out a page, everything is there to read.”

Writer – Jai Murugan
Jai Murugan is a retired teacher living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. His occasionally fruitful attempts at writing include humour, travelogues, children’s literature, and character-building fiction. Being retired from teaching means he has time to explore the world of words, but always in a positive way, as he firmly believes there is sufficient negativity already existing in the written language.
Jai’s inspiration for writing is life itself, whether in the mundane or the intricacies of psychology and sociology. He calls himself a student of humanity, but mostly a bungling one. Years in the classroom, assisting in raising 5 children, and a life-changing event in his teens have culminated in much of what one reads in the columns of Flimsy Whimsy.
You can e-mail Jai at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Writer – Stuart McGowan
Stuart hails from Ontario and performed in amateur theatre there as well as pro summer stock theatre. He has performed with Slixer Entertainment as well as in the Creepy Canada TV production filmed in Fort Saskatchewan in 2005. Stuart has written scripts for a range of plays, and has also been involved in movie production: playing in “Cat’s Cradle” that was released in 2008. He was Ebenezer Scrooge in the Sheeptown Players production “A Christmas Carol” in December 2007.
When not working as a Training officer at Bartle & Gibson, he has also been M.C. for the “Fort’s Got Talent” variety nights at the Shell Theatre at the Dow Centennial Centre.
