Emmerson James Spurrell was born June, 1980 in the Fraser Valley region of British Columbia. At the age of twelve, he became inspired by such authors as Beverly Cleary, Roald Dahl, and Douglas Adams. He soon discovered his love for writing. In the years since, he's immersed himself in the writings of such authors as HP Lovecraft, Michael Crichton, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Robert Jordan, Terry Goodkind and others.
In 2000, he moved to the small town of Ladysmith, British Columbia to discover himself. What he discovered was that he truly knew nothing of life and how to live it. The next eight years were spent learning, making (many) mistakes along the way and spending a night or two in jail for various reasons.

But just how well can a town of eight thousand hold at bay the furies of the Pactlands?
