Chris Patrick Carolan has never traveled by hovercraft or eaten an ostrich, but by becoming a published writer has achieved at least one of the goals he set in his Grade 11 Career and Life Management class workbook. His short fiction has appeared in the anthologies Enigma Front: Burnt (Analemma Books, 2016, shortlisted for an Aurora Award) and Enigma Front: The Monster Within (2017). Born in Glasgow, Scotland, he now lives in Calgary, Alberta, where he is working on various projects including his first novel, a paranormal mystery set in 1880s Halifax.
