(2) Peter Jennings
Joining the show during the second hour is author Peter Jennings. Peter will be discussing his and co-author Nicole Moore’s book, Shark Assault: An Amazing Story of Survival.
One of the most terrifying experiences humans fear is a shark attack. For Nicole Moore, a nurse from Orangeville, Ontario, this horrifying agony is exactly what happened to her. It was an assault all the more brutal for being so unlikely–she was standing in waist-deep water at a Mexican resort. Nicole came close to dying, losing 60 percent of her blood from deep bites on her arm and leg, and was rushed to a hospital where she received a questionable level of medical care that left her and her family confronting physical and mental anguish. Surviving gruesome misery, including the amputation of her left arm and attempts to rebuild her disfigured leg, Nicole has fought on to become a source of inspiration for those facing seemingly insurmountable challenges.
Peter Jennings is an author of fiction and nonfiction books who ran a marketing agency in Toronto for several years before turning to writing full time. He lives in Muskoka, Ontario, where his monthly TV show Be My Guest features in-depth interviews with a variety of interesting personalities.
