I am a public servant by day, and a science fiction author by night when my dark side emerges to wreak murder and mayhem on unsuspecting imaginary worlds.

I use my lifelong love of both science and art to bring new worlds to life for readers to escape to. Back in the real world, I escaped from Britain in 2004 but still miss proper pubs, pork pies, and real bacon.

I now live in beautiful British Columbia with my wife, two children, and assorted pets.

My website contains information on published books, works in progress, and an insider's view into the various story worlds.

You can also connect with me on my blog, Views From the Bald Patch, where I post about Life, Writing, and Random Thoughts That Enter My Mind.

Hey, Jessica, thanks for replying! I'll reply more fully by PM. 110? Wow, I can't match that although I'm not entirely castle-bereft :)


Jessica O'Toole Hi Ian, thanks for the add!

In reply to your message, fascination is an understatement. I'm a bit (lot) obsessed. Approximately 110 and counting! I've even been to that one in Toronto ;)

Have you visited the UK or Europe and seen the fortresses up close? I am always happy to give castle (plus cathedral, and monastic) visiting advice if you ever need it :D
