Kenneth G. Pieroway was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, and grew up in Colinet and Harricott. He obtained his Bachelor of Social Work from Memorial University and has spent a full and rewarding career with Veterans Affairs Canada. His passion for trains and all things rail-related was introduced to him by his father at a very young age, and he still rides and photographs them at every opportunity. In 2013, Kenneth authored the national award–winning Rails Across the Rock, which was followed up by its sequel, Rails Around the Rock, a year later. Streetcars of St. John’s is his third book on Newfoundland’s transportation history. It was inspired by his mother’s tales of the St. John’s streetcars and from riding streetcars himself throughout North America and Europe. The proud father of two, Kenneth now resides in Conception Bay South with his wife of thirty years, Michelle.
