Damian Trasler – Bio

My family’s first year of emigration is recounted in my book.

I emigrated to Canada in 2009 with three children (Eldest Weasel, Middle Weasel and Tiniest Weasel) and a wife (Mrs Dim). Since then we’ve acquired a house and a dog (not in that order), and my plays have continued to sell well. You can see how that first year in BC went by downloading my book from Amazon:

Amazon USAmazon UK       Amazon CA

If you’d like more information about me, my plays, or writing a play, you can contact me through the comments section on any of the pages or posts.

If you’ve performed one of my plays, I’d love to have some of your pictures of the production to add to my gallery. This is one of the most popular areas of the blog, so it’s good for you too – I’ll add any names and website addresses you specify, which adds up to more publicity for you too!

And why not visit my online store? There’s… well, there’s some stuff there. Let’s leave it at that.

    • LIke your blog, the feel of it, and the post about why people write, but sometimes never publish. I have a draft of a book sitting on my desk that has been sitting there for a while and my father had many unpublished great works. Must run in the family…keep up the good work!

  1. Hey there, nice site! I’m looking forward to checking out some more of your Vancouver adventures. I don’t see a link on Twitter but if you’re there you can find me @eduClaytion. Take care.

  2. We’ve just moved to Vancouver in November from London.
    I’ll keep reading your blog then as there’s a lot we’ve got to find out about here!

    Loe the new look and log-line. I about fell out of my chair laughing. Bravo for being brave :D.

    That was supposed to be LOVE the new log-line. Sigh. You would think after ten years writing I would be better at typing. Blech.

    • Someday I’ll tell you about Steve, my writing partner, and why David and I refer to his typing as “knuckle speak”. He once said that we should strive to achieve our ful potnetnila. Now that’s inspiring….

  5. I’m finding the nicest blogs from Canadians lately. I have some of your money at my house if you want it back.

  10. Hello Damian,
    I have nominated you for “The Very Inspiring Blogger Award”.
    Check it out http://angelagodbout.wordpress.com/2013/01/20/very-inspiring-bloggers-award/

  11. Hello again,
    I just downloaded your emigration book! Very interested to see how your experience compares to ours. We managed with just the one ‘weasel’ but she was only 18 months old at the time so it wasn’t exactly plain sailing!
    Glad Vancouver is treating you well, anyway!

    • Many thanks, and I hope you enjoy the book! I can’t imagine coming out here with a child that age – I did all the househusband stuff for our three, but don’t remember anything being plain sailing when they were that small. You have my undying admiration!
