I’m a retired surveyor who has worked in the oil provinces of Canada, the Canadian Arctic and the Libyan desert. I’ve also surveyed on a heavy construction project, a dam, where I was a member of the tunneling survey crew and then the check surveyor for the main dam construction.
I live in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada, with my wife and two Humane Society shelter dogs. I was born in London, England, just a couple of months before the Second World War started and became a Canadian Citizen in 1975. I walk the dogs (well, actually they run), every morning, rain, shine, or blizzard – they get an hour to an hour and a half, and I get the needed exercise.
I now write fiction full time. I have two novels accepted by Double Dragon with the first slated for June 2007 – and now I have a fantasy novel accepted by Zumaya. I also have a 9000 word short in the new DDP anthology Twisted Tails II (vol 2). My DDP novels are soft SF, with a small group of moderns marooned on an alternate Earth circa 1700 – political and military adventures with swordfights, sailing ships, and cavalry action. My Zumaya title is a fantasy novel that has a young prince taking on dangerous magic to become the sorcerer king – and his sweetheart taking action against the circumstance that says they cannot marry. It also features an arrogant antagonist who pits his materialist technology against magic and the human spirit.
