Dick Wybrow is a Canadian author. His novels are mainly set in the US, where he grew up. A former stand-up comedian, Wybrow is a humor writer who crafts thrillers that incorporate elements of suspense, horror, mystery, science fiction and fantasy.


At the age of six, Dick was given his first book by his father. It was Wind in the Willows. Naturally, that put Dick off reading for several years.

After discovering Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, the love of reading returned. And with it came the compulsion to get lost worlds like Douglas had created.

Dick lives in Auckland, New Zealand with one wife and two cats.

That changes daily.

However, one constant is that no matter what's going on in your day-to-day life, you've got a place to get away from the world. And, increasingly, if you keep at it the characters in your worlds will BEGIN TO TALK TO YOU.

Motorcycles and Bat Shit Endings...

As some of you have noticed, motorcycles ride all through these books.

Mostly in the Hell Inc. series-- Raz has the Motobullet in the first novel and, again, ends up on a bike in Hell to Pay.

Hmm... not a LOT of motorcycle riding in the Painter Mann series. Of course, he's a ghost, so hard to shift without, well, a body.

But, I may have to find a way to rectify that.

Either way, working on Book 3 of P Read more of this blog post »

This is one of those books I really wanted to like more than I did.

Jemisin has some beautiful world-building here. The imagery, so well crafted, induces fear and awe in the characters and the Reader. I wanted to go there and see it first hand!

“Nature" doesn't really have intentions, per se. Nature is a drunk waking up from a weekend bender, ambling through a messy kitchen in a pair of mismatched slippers, seeing its car in the neighbor's pool and saying, "Ah good. It was dirty. Just the thing.”
Pat Connid, The Vault Matrix #1

“He’d made a rule, ten years earlier, that the Grimsby Grumman Saloon didn’t open until eleven. That is, on weekdays. Weekends were all his, so on those two glorious days, it was a twenty-four-hour establishment.”
Dick Wybrow, The InBetween

“I never thought Minneapolis would be more dangerous than Chicago. Never sounded terribly dangerous. The city’s name always sounded a bit like what you might name a lapdog that pisses itself when the doorbell rings.”
Dick Wybrow, The InBetween

“The bike’s curved windshield looked as though it had turned into a terrifying wraparound HD screen. A television with just one channel and only one program called Falling to My Death.”
