I also write as GJC McKitrick. As a general rule, I write science fiction using the pseudonym T.K. Boomer and other stuff using G.J.C. McKitrick. Most people call me Greg.
My first published novel is A Walk in the Thai Sun and is NOT science fiction.
I live in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada.
Married to a politician.
We have two grown sons, both of whom were adopted from an orphanage in Bangkok. Both are professionals.

We travel a lot: Cancun, the Galapagos Islands, Machu Picchu, Ireland, Scotland, England, France, the Czech Republic, China, Peru, Cuba, Hawaii, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Egypt, Costa Rica, and numerous American and Canadian destinations.
I do not have motorized toys, pets, paragliding equipment or a bucket list.
I find it strange that no self-identified aliens are following me on Twitter.

Thai is my second language because we lived in rural Thailand between 1986 and 1990.

I was once prevented from doing a school science fair project on dinosaurs because the then Premier of Alberta, Ernest C. Manning, was against the theory of evolution.
Late in 2017, I received an autism spectrum diagnosis three months before my 65th birthday. I wrote about this in a piece called Aliens and Autism.
