Jeffrey K. Walker has been a stockbroker, a fighter jet navigator, a lawyer and a professor. He's lived all over the world, from Bosnia to Baghdad to Boston.

But when Virginia-based Walker turned his hand to fiction writing, he decided to focus much of his World War I novel, None of Us the Same, in Newfoundland with Newfoundland characters.

"I ran across the Newfoundland Regiment by accident during my research," said Walker,

"And the more I read about it, the more I was drawn to it."

Hear about Jeffrey K. Walker's research trip to Newfoundland, and how his newfound love of Newfoundland fits into his colourful life in his conversation with Weekend AM‚Äč host Heather Barrett.
