Now a full-time writer, Stanley Evans has been a soldier, a surveyor, and deep-sea fisherman. He once spent several months travelling up and down the Amazon and its tributaries. A former college instructor, he began his writing career in newspapers and magazines. He worked one season in Canada's Northwest Territories, as a crewman on the George Askew, one of Canada's last functioning paddlewheelers. Evans' hobbies are reading, carving wooden duck decoys, and conversation. He lives in Victoria.
