Shayne Easson was raised in the small town of Clearwater, British Columbia, seventy-five miles away from the closest bookstore. Thankfully, his grandmother smuggled him books from the city, fueling Shayne’s passion for reading and writing fantasy. Between crashing motorcycles, bear encounters, and a few incidents with escaped convicts, Shayne managed to survive long enough to graduate High School and pursue an electrical apprenticeship.
That apprenticeship eventually pulled him to Alberta. In 2003, Shayne received his Master Electrician degree and co-founded Alcon Electrical Corp., and has since built it into a thriving business with over 150 employees across Western Canada.
In his spare time, Shayne enjoys returning to his roots. Camping, hiking, boating—any adventure involving the great outdoors. Regardless of where the path takes him, reading and writing remains the staple of the journey. Shayne and his family splits their time between Okotoks, Alberta and Argenta, British Columbia. He is currently writing two sequels for his upcoming novel for Lophii Press, The Rhythm of a Jaded Heart.
