Dwayne R Johnston grew up in the northern forests of Canada in a small community of farmers, trappers and hunters, with place names like Misty Dawn and Mirror Landing. As an adult he lived in a small cottage surrounded by forest for well over a decade. He's wore a variety of hats over the years, first working in a market garden, and then some sawmills. He also worked in the forest service as a firefighter where he took many trips flying over and roaming through the forest that inspired his writing. Presently he is living on Canada's Great Plains in the city of Saskatoon. Memories from the past and the spirit of the places he has been continue to paint pictures in his mind, stirring him to write of places, far, far away.
