Lyle Garford

Lyle Garford graduated from university in 1981 and, after meeting his future wife, moved to Vancouver, Canada. He worked as a manager for over 30 years, but life now is all about the writing.

His latest project is a departure into new territory. He was fascinated as a kid by the exotic sugar islands of the Caribbean where his novel Dockyard Dog is set. The age of sail from the American Revolutionary War through to Waterloo in 1815 grabbed his attention when he got older and he has combined these interests with The Evan Ross Series.
