About the Author

Born Northern Ireland, Duffy spent three years cycling round Eastern and Western Europe. He then obtained a BA in Geography from the Queen's University of Belfast, emigrated to Canada, took an MSc at the University of Calgary, and studied for his PhD at McGill University in Montreal. In Montreal he started a long career as a university lecturer in Geography. His writing career began as a freelance journalist. Then McGill-Queen's University Press published his book, The Road to Nunavut: The Progress of the Eastern Arctic Inuit since the Second World War, and Libros Libertad has published The Unquiet Land and In Turbulent Times, the first two novels in an Ulster Trilogy. In addition he has self-published three novels: The Janus Web, Crossed Lives, and O'Hanlon, and a history Until the Troubles Started: A Brief Political History of Northern Ireland, all available from Amazon. Crossed Lives received an Honorable Mention at the 2012 New York Book Festival. His only play, Hearts and Minds, won a first prize in the Alberta Playwriting Competition. He is now working on a travel book A Cluster of Grapes: Travels by Bicycle round Southern Europe. He is married, has two sons, and lives in Surrey, British Columbia, with his Canadian wife, Joanne, and two Jack Russell terriers. See www.ronduffywriting.com or www.facebook.com/RonDuffyWriting
