About the author
Fred Elder lives in London, Ontario. He is the father of three and grandfather of two, Harry and Declan.
He is an avid reader, enjoying the works of a dynamic range of writers that include JRR Tolkien, Christopher Moore, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Peter Clines, Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, Claire North and Brian George. Any story that offers a touch of the supernatural or evokes an eerie tingle down the spine or brings a splash of wonder is a worthy read. He looks for adventures that allow the reader to experience the uncanny.
It was only when he faced a near fatal medical emergency in 2017 that he took up writing. Whether it was the ‘touch of death’ that motivated him, Fred couldn’t say, but a veritable well spring of story ideas began coming to him. In the literal sense, he hasn’t been able to put the pen down ever since.
“Every story requires a collaboration between two imaginations. An author can only pour their soul into a story; it’s up to the reader to breathe life into it.” Fred Elder
