Larry W Richardson was born in New Brunswick in 1948, raised in Ontario and after living and traveling all over Canada, finally settled in St Catharines Ontario in 2002. He joined the RCAF in 1966 as an Aircraftman 2nd Class Radar Technician (Nav Aids) and retired in 1995 from the Canadian Forces with the rank of Major. TCOM, his first novel, was written for the most part while traveling and working in the Canadian Arctic during 2006-2009. His experiences as a husband, technician, parent, Military Officer, Project Manager and late-to-the fold Pink Floyd/Roger Waters fan have influenced TCOM. He is a consultant to the Defence Communications Industry.

Always fasinated by anything Mars, I found TCOM to be on par with the best of efforts. I started reading on a Saturday afternoon,stopping when I could no longer prevent sleep. Continuing the next day, I finished that afternoon. Somewhere that first day my psysic became in sync with Sam. For the better part of those two days, I was on Mars, traveling, thinking and wordering. How could I be on Mars and not explore? How could I end, how could I leave? The answer was not a choice, but the next step. As the last page was read, it was right.
