Chased by a Cape Buffalo in Botswana and then by a corrupt governor in Tennessee. Abducted by a black market money changer in Mombasa. Spent one New Years Eve in Paradise Bay, Antarctica; another in the Himalayas. Is this from the plot of a novel? Nope. It's Rob Sangster's life.
And throw in swimming with Humpback whales, spending the night on top of a Mayan temple in Tikal, Guatemala, and traveling in seven continents and more than 100 countries - all of which were more important to him than earning the last possible dollar. And that attitude led inevitably to . . . becoming a writer.
During years of international travel, Rob started with non-fiction, his acclaimed "Traveler's Tool Kit: How to Travel Absolutely Anywhere." He then developed a yen to try writing fiction, and quickly discovered that about the only useful skill he brought from non-fiction was spelling. Ground Truth, his first effort, is followed by an adventure with a wildly different plot featuring three of the same key players in Deep Time.
Now living half of each year on the coast of Nova Scotia, his curiosity about the far corners of the world remains undiminished, but he's hooked on fiction.
