Craig Spence


Writing - or more accurately, narrative story telling - has been a driving passion for as long as I can remember. It has flowed around and through my life experiences as husband, father, journalist and communications guy. I will be a writer ‘til the day I die; it’s how I explore and synthesize my world.

My partner in life, Diana Durrand, is an artist. Our sons Daniel and Ian have put up with us for 25 and 22 years respectively. Daniel plays hockey in Joensuu, Finland; Ian is learning the skills of the drywall trade in Langley, BC. They are both great guys.

If you want to know more about me, please visit and click the bio link. You will also find there a list of my works (including works in progress). Other published books include: Josh & the Magic Vial, 2006, which was shortlisted for the BC Book Prize award for children’s literature, and Einstein Dog, 2009.

An author of course, is nothing without an audience. Thanks for bringing my story to life by reading.
