Bio: George Laidlaw was born in Ottawa, Canada’s Capital and is married with two children Michael and Meghan. He has been writing ever since he told bed time stories to his children and received the plaintive cry, ‘Dad tell us another story.’ After working for the Canadian government as a biologist, for over 30 years, his hopes are to pursue his writing career in retirement and craft stories that draws in the reader and leave them with a finely crafted action-filled romance adventure, and an overall appraisal from the reader with a comment ‘it was a good read’.
