Hi! I'm the author of more than 50 science-fiction, fantasy, science, and other non-fiction books for both young readers and adults, under my own name and under a couple of pen names.

As E.C. Blake, I'm the author of the MASKS OF AYGRIMA fantasy trilogy from DAW Books: MASKS, SHADOWS, and FACES. As Lee Arthur Chane, I wrote the epic steampunk-meets-magic fantasy novel MAGEBANE (also published by DAW Books). And as Edward Willett, I'm the author of the SHARDS OF EXCALIBUR YA fantasy series from Coteau Books: SONG OF THE SWORD, TWIST OF THE BLADE, LAKE IN THE CLOUDS, CAVE BENEATH THE SEA, and DOOR INTO FAERIE. Another YA title is FLAMES OF NEVYANA, from Rebelight Books. Other science fiction novels include LOST IN TRANSLATION, MARSEGURO and TERRA INSEGURA (all from DAW Books) and RIGHT TO KNOW and FALCON'S EGG from Bundoran Press. MARSEGURO won the 2009 Prix Aurora Award for best Canadian science fiction and fantasy novel. My newest science fiction novel is THE CITYBORN, my eighth from DAW Books. My ninth, WORLDSHAPER, will launch a new science fantasy series in September.

My non-fiction writing for young readers has received National Science Teachers Association and VOYA awards.

I was born in Silver City, New Mexico, but grew up in Weyburn, Saskatchewan Canada. I now live in Regina, Saskatchewan. In addition to being a writer, I'm also a professional actor and singer who has performed in dozens of plays, musicals and operas in and around Saskatchewan. I'm married and have a teenaged daughter.

I'll be serializing novels, posting short stories, and trying out some new stuff on here, i hope, so please...follow and have fun!
