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

and fish physiology at the University of Victoria and the

University of British Columbia.

I founded the non-profit World Fisheries Trust in 1995 and served

as Executive Director until 2005.  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.

I live on Protection Island, just off Nanaimo, B.C.  My interests

include music, boats and hiking, in no particular order. I read a

lot, I play the piano most days and have sailed around Vancouver

Island, an experience I wrote a book about--soon to be published

as SEA TRIAL.
