More About Me
As for me, I now live in Toronto. I was formerly a mining engineer and travelled the world widely.
Tiring of the mining industry (my unalterable conviction being that mining in 40 degrees in the shade was a vastly overrated pastime) and wanting to experience more of the world firsthand, I also worked from time to time as a docker, fruit inspector and forester. My books and screenplays draw on these experiences to provide characters, backgrounds and scenes.
I am the author and publisher of the "Maxim Gunn" series of action/adventure books, the second of which, "Maxim Gunn and the Demon Plan" was a finalist in the 1998 Crime Writers of Canada, Arthur Ellis Award for Best Juvenile Novel.
I have also written some fifteen other novels: drama, thriller and action/adventure and screenplays which follow the central character to countries and places where the forces of nature as much as people provide the conflict.
