Marc Stevens was born in Montreal in the late 1950's. but grew up between Ottawa and Toronto. He attended Trinity College at the University of Toronto in the late 1970's.

From the age of 10, Marc has had a serious case of wanderlust, and has visited over 65 countries on all 7 continents. An interest in history, especially aviation in World War II, developed because of the service of Marc's father as an RAF bomber pilot in that war.

Made the Top 10 List for Best Revenge Books!

Astonishingly, the book I wrote about my father’s life was today listed as the 5th best book about revenge, ever, in Britain’s The Guardian newspaper. Better than the Bible, better than Crime and Punishment, better than Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series. Also on the list: The Count of Monte Cristo, Hamlet and Wuthering Heights.

My mind has officially been blown.

Without Remorse by Tom Clancy
"5.0 Stars. Absolutely superb novel focusing on the enigmatic John Clark who is one of best, if not the best, spy novel characters ever. This is one of my favorite Tom Clancy novels despite being a much "smaller" scale story. Highly Recommended!!!!"

Free As A Running Fox by T.D. Calnan
"A fascinating, true story of a British POW's attempts to escape German confinement in the Second World War. I have read this book several times and still enjoy it."
Free As a Running Fox by T.D. Calnan
"This is perhaps one of the lesser-known WWII escape tales, though Tommy Calnan's tale forms part of the fascinating saga of British and Allied airmen in the Stalag Luft III compounds.

In its pages we meet again Eric Williams and Mike Codner of the Woo" Read more of this review »
