About the Authors

Stephen has been a marine biologist, a computer systems manager, and is currently CEO of Northwind Ink Books,(www.northwindInk.com), author and artist.  He's worked in a variety of mediums and finds soapstone and oil-painting to be the most satisfying.  He has sixteen books in a variety of genres available internationally and has several more under way. Experimentation and exploration are the spices of life.  He and his wife live on the West Coast of Canada.

Stephen currently splits his time between working on new books, publishing, teaching and creating new soapstone sculptures.

Jeanne-Marie is a linguistic archeologist, specializing in translating ancient scrolls and manuscripts.  She absorbs languages like a sponge absorbs water and is fluent in many of the Mediterranean languages, both current and ancient. She learns new languages as a hobby when she has nothing else to do.

Jeanne is currently working and taking notes for Stephen to turn into their next book.
