Richard Scarsbrook, based in Toronto, was born in Olinda, near Leamington, Ontario. His first writing attempts were comics, and science fiction stories inspired by Star Wars. With an honours degree in History, and another degree in Education, Scarsbrook became a high school teacher. When he wasn’t teaching Grade 7 and 8, he acted in a local community theatre, and played drums for a rock band called “The Know”. He also continued to write, and has had many short stories and poems published. Recently he has given up acting in order to focus on his writing, but still plays drums in his current rock band, “The Nerve”.
