I'm an author living in Ottawa, Canada. I'm originally from Vancouver, but in a moment of insanity, decided to move my family out East. Now I need to sell enough books to move back to BC.
I've written two novels, Charlie Robot and Finding Demons, and they're both available for download on Amazon. They're quite different from each other, (one is science fiction and the other is fantasy) but one thing they have in common is a sense of humor. Nothing too silly, but enough that the reader will be left shaking their head, wondering, 'What's wrong with that guy?'
I find inspiration in everyday things. In fact, I spend most of my time daydreaming, thinking up plots and situations over mugs of tea. I forget the majority of my ideas, (I'm not smart enough to write them down) but the ones I do remember tend to be doozies. (That's probably why I remember them)
I'm currently hard at work writing my third novel. It doesn't have a title yet, but it's set in an alien world that might or might not be purgatory. I'm hoping it will be available sometime in 2015.
Meet Charlie. He’s a robot. Or so he claims.
It’s the near future, and a tiny robotics lab in Vancouver, B.C is preparing to unveil the world’s first artificial human to a select gathering of investors. Unfortunately the android ran away before it could be shown, and with the lab’s funding hanging in the balance, mild-mannered Charlie is coerced by his boss and laboratory founder, Dr. Doug Layton, to pose as the robot until the real machine can be found. But it’s a nightmare, and as the weeks pass and there is still no sign of the run-away android, Charlie is left with a difficult decision, continue the charade or come clean. Either way, his life will never be the same.
For seventeen-year-old William Stun, ghost town inhabitant and blossoming artist, life is an exercise in boredom. That all changes when an eccentric nobleman named Harold hires him to be his personal photographer. But there is more to Harold than meets the eye, and when William discovers his job requires taking photographs of his employer killing monsters, it isn’t long before he begins pining for the eerie quiet of home.
