Brief biography:
I write plays for adults and books for kids. In theatre, I’m best known for my cross-cultural comedy hit, Mom, Dad, I’m Living with a White Girl and my thriller The Bone House. For kids, my Marty Chan Mystery Series has been a favourite among young readers for over ten years. I live in Edmonton with my wife Michelle and our two cats, Buddy and Max.

What are you working on now?
I’m splitting duties between a few projects. I have to complete the third book in the Ehrich Weisz Chronicles in which the young Ehrich Weisz must save his brother and find his way home. I’m also working on a fantasy thriller for reluctant teen readers. In theatre, I’m collaborating with composer Kevin Wong to write a cross-cultural musical comedy about a young Chinese actor trying to break into Hollywood.

Marty’s reading recommendation:
I’m a huge fan of Arthur Slade’s books. His Hunchback Assignments is an amazing steampunk fantasy series for young readers.

Brief biography:
L.J. Heydorn has been professionally writing in the communications industry for nearly two decades. His childhood years, with a fantasy artist mother and a techie dad, were filled with Sci-Fi and Fantasy movies, books, and games. The passion grew for them while he did too. For over two decades he made pilgrimages to Sci-Fi/Fantasy conventions and gatherings. The boundless imaginations of artist, script writers, authors, directors, and producers never ceased to amaze him. It was this admiration that not only captivated him but started his quest to aspire to achieve long-term goals.
