I've been writing articles and books for a general audience since

1995. This site tells you about me and profiles my recent books.

I grew up on the west coast of Canada and studied marine biology

at the University of Victoria and the University of British

Columbia.  I worked as an independent conservation biologist

until 2005, an occupation that gave me a chance to see quite a lot

of South America and Asia.  I began writing seriously in 1997 with

Against the Current, a travel column for the Victoria Times-

Colonist, followed by another column, Reality Check, for Waters

magazine, as well as science-travel articles for Escape and Westworld.

My first book for a general audience, The End of the River, was

published in 2008. My latest book is Sea Trial (2019), also non-

fiction. My other books are the mysteries Beethoven's Tenth and

Tokyo Girl and the thriller Gone Grizzly. Each book has its own page

on this website, with descriptions, reviews and where to buy.
