Kenneth G. Pieroway

Kenneth G. Pieroway was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, and grew up in the rural outports of Colinet and Harricott. He obtained his B.S.W. from Memorial University of Newfoundland and retired from a full and rewarding career with Veterans Affairs Canada. His passion for trains and all things rail-related was inspired by his father at a very young age. Whenever possible, he still rides and photographs them at every opportunity, having travelled by rail across Canada twice on the legendary Canadian, as well as across the US and Europe numerous times. Always wanting to be a writer, he authored the national award–winning Rails Across the Rock in 2013, which was quickly followed up by its sequel, Rails Around the Rock, a year later. In 2019, as an homage to his mom, Ken released Streetcars of St. John’s, published by Flanker Press. Trains of Newfoundland is his fourth publication on Newfoundland’s transportation history, a tribute to his dad for giving him a lifelong fascination and hobby. The proud father of two, Kenneth now resides in Conception Bay South with his wife and international rail travelling companion of thirty-three years, Michelle.
