Author and Book Information
|BEVERLEY B. DUBELLE|
|Beverley Dubelle has served as teacher, therapist, counselor, foster child advocate, pedagogical consultant, French-English translator, pianist, editor, traveler, community volunteer, wife and mother. From these roles she has developed a keen insight into human condition. Born in Montreal, Canada, Beverley spent the first 48 years of her life as a staunch supporter of Canadian federalism and unity. To survive the seemingly endless attempts by certain factions to dissolve that unity, she has had to nurture a strong sense of humor in order to cope with the heart-wrenching experience of it all. Working with teenagers and young adults, especially in motherhood and teaching, has likewise added to the humor she finds in living. Beverley has two sons, Christopher and Mark, and an adopted daughter, Danielle. As a student of Latin, she won the Governor General's Medal and used the accompanying scholarship to attend St. Joseph Teachers' College. She completed her BA at the Thomas More Institute in Montreal. Many of her studies, especially those in piano and teacher in-service courses, required her to utilize her fluency in the French language. Her MA in psychotherapy and counseling is from the Adler Institute in Chicago. Beverley married an American, and subsequently left her beloved country to migrate south, first to Pennsylvania and then to Virginia where she has lived for the past five years. Mastery of the southern language, customs and climate are her current passions.||
|THIS DUMPSTER LEAKS; Falling in Love With the South|
|Beverley Dubelle has
an uncanny knack for taking something seemingly
unnoticed or nondescript and finding interesting
aspects about it. In writing this book, she took
seemingly ho-hum personal experiences,
breathed life into them and wrote them for others
to enjoy. The vignettes that appear herein are but
brief encounters in the course of daily living that
provide snapshots of life which the author pastes
into an album called This DumpsterLeaks:Falling
in Love with the South.
Some of the stories are funny; others are sad. One poignant example deals with the death of a favorite hummingbird and is entitled "Where Do Hummers Go?" A few of the vignettes may provoke a touch of anger while others will provide food for thought.
