Bio: Despite the long hours and lousy pay, Dave couldn't be happier being a dad to three little girls and husband to one beautiful wife. The benefits are incredible and his co-workers are incredibly supportive. It's just that sometimes, the working conditions can be extremely ... pink. Heck, even the dog is a girl. Read about the unique challenges he faces on his blog, They Have Me Surrounded. Born in Saskatoon, Dave moved to Ottawa at age 13. Eventually, he found the journalism program at SAIT Polytechnic in Calgary. From there, it was newspaper jobs across the Prairies and into Northwestern Ontario and, finally, the Okanagan Valley. His work has also appeared on websites around the world including GlobalPost, CNN Public Square, Salon and Business Insider. Dave has now branched into fiction writing. His third juvenile short fiction book, Free Runner, was published by Lorimer Children and Teens in Spring, 2018.
