I was born in England and emigrated to Canada in 1967 where I completed my University education and graduated as an electrical engineer. President and CEO of my own consulting engineering firm for over 30 years, I recently retired and am now devoting my time to some of my loves…boating, golf and, of course, writing. Married for 30+ years to Marguerite, who provides much of the inspiration and help for my writing. I live in Ottawa, Canada.
What's the story behind your latest book?
When I originally wrote Lost Loot of Lima, I had no intention of actually writing a book. I kept adding to the story and eventually ended up with 70,000+ words. I then had to formulate an ending and the novel was born. People who read it have been asking for a sequel, which wasn't originally planned. I am unable to divulge much about the new book (I don't even have a name for it yet) because it may be a spoiler for those who haven't read Lost Loot yet. I can say that it does have locales in Central America and starts with people mysteriously dying in Detroit and other North American cities.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I started writing my first book over ten years ago and finished it five years ago, at which time I started my second book. I really didn't want to go through the rejection routine experienced by tradition publishing, so didn't do anything. It was a result of my wife's insistence that I decided to publish and submitted both books to Smashwords.
