        Home Sea Trial Beethoven's Tenth Tokyo Girl The End of the River Gone Grizzly

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.

NEW BOOK COMING!

SEA TRIAL: SAILING AFTER MY FATHER will be published

by ECW Press in May 2019!

Watch for upcoming announcements on release date,

reviews and promotion.
