George was born and raised in Manitoba. He obtained an MA in Anthropology from the University of Manitoba. He left Manitoba in the early 1970's to work on a post-graduate degree in archaeology. While at Simon Fraser University he continued to pursue his true vocation – fly fishing. After teaching anthropology and archaeology at Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia, he did an eight-year stint as the editor of BC Outdoors Magazine and was the founding editor of Action Outdoors Magazine. After he left the magazine business in the late 1990's, he was involved in the development of digital photography programs in Alaska and later the Lower 48. That all ended in tears, so he retreated to Kamloops, BC where he does some freelancing and has contributed to several fly fishing books. George may frequently be seen lobbing flies from his boat at favorite lakes such as Jacko, Stump and Peterhope. He has flung flies in Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico and in many states and provinces. He is still looking for that elusive woman who fly fishes, hunts, enjoys good Scotch and preferably owns a distillery.

Seven Fires is a novel that combines elements of Anisinabe (Ojibwe) sorcery, with high tech espionage and historical injustice - with a few days of fishing thrown in.
