Welcome to my world.
I’m the author of the Rancour Chronicles, Flying Feet, Children of Ruin, The Three Spartans and Spartan at Sea.
I grew up on the icy plains of Manitoba, where I spent most of my teenage years reading comics and playing Dungeons and Dragons.
Both of these hobbies taught me the storytelling tools that I now use as an author and creative writing instructor. When I’m not writing, I’m practicing karate, streaming on Twitch, or walking my two dogs.
storytelling in many forms
traditional storytelling combined with telling stories through technology
A few of my books
Eric Walters on The Three Spartans:
A great read! You’ll feel like you’re with them in the battle. Go Spartans Go!
Arthur Slade on Children of Ruin
Zombies? Check. Non-stop apocalyptic action? Check! This book will get your heart pumping. Read it with one hand on a machete (just in case).
Tom Angleberger on A Spartan at Sea
McCann understands that epic adventures don’t belong just to the distant past and definitely don’t belong just to adults.
