S J Garrett hails from Canada. He's never been much of an academic. He's been a steel worker, an industrial electrician and more recently a warehouse employee for a famous Swedish furniture retailer. However, writing has been a personal passion of his for some time and it first emerged when he was just ten years old. His favorite literary disciplines are poetry and fiction writing. Presently, he has four published e-novels of recent vintage and poetry that dates back to his analog days.
He does like to write his biographical information in the third person but he mostly prefers to write his creative narratives in the first person because he finds that method not just more challenging but also because it is 'truer' to his poetic roots; the inner monologues that he expressed in verse simply evolved into the dialog of a first person narrator. He also thinks it adds a serious measure of verisimilitude to the oeuvre in general. Two of his e-novels are general fiction and the other two are best described as hard Sci-Fi.
