Pre-Order The Shadow of War by TSJ!
When I was a teenager, I read a lot of 1950s Science Fiction. It was the tail end of the “Golden Age of Science Fiction.” Asimov, Pohl, Heinlein, del Rey and more. I fell in love with the genre because of those books. They sparked my imagination and took me to fascinating locations in futuristic settings. The stakes were always huge. It’s those books that really taught me how important YA Science Fiction is. Readers get hooked on the genre early; it’s what happened to me.
On Sunday, I made the long voyage to Indigo/Chapters London North in London, Ontario for a book signing to promote my newest books, Fatal Depth and An Island of Light. I say this tongue in cheek, because the store is in the same city in which I live: London, Ontario. Usually I’m driving hours to a signing … this time, it was only twenty minutes. It was heaven.

I celebrated my birthday this year with family and friends at one of the best restaurants in London, Michael’s on the Thames. Following this, we watched James Bond in No Time to Die.

I haven’t been able to do in-person signings due to Covid restrictions in Ontario, but we’ve now moved into reopening retail, and recently I was able to visit some stores and sign copies of my brand new Sci-Fi / TechnoThriller Fatal Depth, just out from Fitzhenry & Whiteside, Ltd.
Last Saturday evening, I watched via Zoom as The Savage Deeps achieved First in Category in the 2020 CYGNUS Awards. I want to express my gratitude to the judges, organizers, my readers, fans, family, and friends.
