Donald Horne
Currently the Associate Editor of Insurance Business Canada, I joined the KMI Media team in January working as a Senior Writer with Mortgage Broker News, and Insurance Business America.
 
A graduate of the Ryerson journalism program, I have primarily worked in daily newspapers for more than 14 years, as a reporter, copy editor/paginator, and editor in Cobourg, Ont. I moved on to magazines to be editor of Electricity Today, and launched Electrical Source during my seven years with Electricity Forum in Pickering, Ont.
 
Born and raised in a farm in Orillia, Ont. (sorry, no log cabin). Great training for a blossoming journalist, as cleaning up after the farm animals provided a keen insight to what is truth and what… isn’t.
 
The only field of endeavour that I considered aside from journalism was teaching piano – as I came with a year of completing my Royal Conservatory training. It was a choice of entering Ryerson or finishing off my piano. As the dust gathering on my piano at home will attest, I chose wisely.
 
Like all writers, we all have a novel inside us and a story to tell. I finally did back in 2007, publishing a novella.
