Join Sonia Nadina Haynes as she interviews Barry Jakel author of Excuse Me! Your Sun Is In My Shadow - a book of prose and imagery.

Born in Calgary Alberta in 1948, Barry now resides on Vancouver’s North Shore. His career path included early stops in Ottawa and Calgary before beginning his goal
to become a broadcaster with seventeen years in radio as an announcer and writer. It all began in 1970 with a move to 100 Mile House in British Columbia’s Cariboo Country and before it was over, his journeys took him to Quesnel, Kelowna, Vernon, and finally Vancouver’s lower mainland where he ended his broadcasting days.

Barry has recently retired, after twenty-three enjoyable and memorable years in sales and marketing with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Always an optimist, (after all, he is a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan) he is now exploring new horizons with his special life partner Maria by his side.

This is his first book, a blend of early and recent thoughts in words, combined with another passion – captured treasured moments of his photography.
