Born and raised in Canada, I migrated to the United States where I spent over 30 years working for a non-profit, travelling the world and engaging in many adventures. I have an extensive background in Human Resources, recruiting, sales and management.
Inspired by several authors, I began to pen my first works in the late 80's, but I never published until 2009 when my first book, The Buffalo Kid, came out. Since then I have published twelve novels. Over the past ten years of my professional writing career I've come to realize that my unique genre is high-concept thrillers - thrillers that push the edge of the envelope.
