by Don Lohnes

Lonnie Donaldson was born and raised in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia. He leads an enjoyable childhood on the banks of the LaHave River and has developed a strong friendship with a neighbor. A family tragedy results in his move to Halifax, the capital of the Province, and to complete his education. While in Halifax he meets his future wife and begins working on construction projects which leads to his chosen profession of architecture. As an architect he holds several employment positions before becoming registered with the Nova Scotia Association of Architects and starting his own firm. Lonnie finds a partner and together they build a successful architectural practice in Nova Scotia, Canada and other parts of the world. One project, which they won in a design competition, is that of a stadium for Halifax. The stadium project, during the construction phase, leads to a long and drawn out law suit followed by an attempted murder.

The author, Donald Lohnes, FRAIC is a retired architect. He practiced architecture actively for thirty seven years before retiring in 2008. He was president of the Nova Scotia Association of Architects (NSAA) on two occasions, both during the period of the re-writing of the Nova Scotia Architects Act. In 2007 he was awarded fellowship in the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC). This book takes place mainly in the wonderful Province of Nova Scotia. Some of the buildings mentioned were projects undertaken by his firm while others are purely fictional. During his practice he was involved in a court case, similar to that being described, which is one of the reasons why he wrote this book. Hopefully to raise the awareness for architects and other design professionals that while not committing a crime you can sometimes end up in the courts and that it may not result in a decision that you were expecting. His first book titled “So You Want to BUILD a HOUSE” was published in 2014. He resides in Halifax with his wife Pamela.
