Ian S. Bott

Biography

I am a science fiction author who successfully avoided all forms of creative writing until rather late in life, when the writing bug finally caught me napping.

In hindsight this should not have been a surprise; trained as a software developer, the switch from business requirement documents to speculative fiction was only a small step.

I live in beautiful British Columbia with my wife, two children, and a steadily expanding menagerie of pets.
