I am an avid mystery reader, and I write a mystery series featuring a former RCMP homicide detective who left the Mounties and started a new career as a long haul truck driver. Of course, he somehow continues to get involved in murder investigations, sometimes going undercover in cooperation with his former colleagues in the RCMP.
The first novel in the series is called SLOW CURVE ON THE COQUIHALLA and, as the title indicates, is partly set on the "Highway Thru Hell" featured in the Discovery Channel show. The second is called ICE ON THE GRAPEVINE, a novel in which the action moves between Southern California (the Grapevine pass is just north of L.A.) and British Columbia. The third is set mainly in the resort community of Whistler, BC, site of the 2010 Winter Olympics, and its title refers to the SEA TO SKY highway between Vancouver and Whistler Mountain. The fourth, SUNDOWN ON TOP OF THE WORLD, is set mainly in Alaska and the Yukon, in the vicinity of the Top of the World highway.
I live on a ranch in BC's Cariboo region, an area where you'll see cattle, cowboys and hundreds of lakes as you cruise its highways. My ranch-mates are a French Canadian cowboy named Gilbert Roy, three horses (two Canadian Horse mares and a Quarter Horse), three dogs, and numerous deer, foxes, moose and other wildlife.
