Writer, photographer, retired newspaperman and B & B operator.
Craigleith, Town of the Blue Mountains, Ontario, Canada
George Czerny-Holownia has been writing for more than four decades under the name George Czerny. He spent almost 30 years in the newspaper business, starting as a reporter/photographer and then taking on any challenges thrown at him in a newsroom. He moved on from being managing editor of a daily newspaper to becoming the publisher and general manager of the then-weekly newspaper, The Enterprise-Bulletin in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. A 14-year stint at the helm of this community newspaper put him in close proximity with small-town community life and the then-busy (but now closed) Collingwood Shipyards about which he has written. Mr. Czerny married Nancy in 1968. They live in Craigleith, very close to the southern shore of Georgian Bay and operate Georgian Blue B & B, close to Blue Mountain Resorts in the "Georgian Triangle", a four-seasons vacation area. George and Nancy have two sons, Stephen and Douglas, and five grandchildren to whom The Collingwood Shipyards book is dedicated.
