Jamie Ibson hails from the frozen wastelands of Canuckistan, where moose, bears, and geese battle for domination among the hockey rinks, igloos, and Tim Hortons. After joining the Canadian army reserves in high school, he spent half of 2001 in Bosnia as a peacekeeper and came home shortly after 9/11 with a deep sense of foreboding. After graduating college, he landed a job in law enforcement and has been posted to the left coast since 2007. He published his first short stories in 2018, with more in 2019, and made the leap to novels in 2020. He’s pretty much been making it up as he goes along, although he has numerous writer friends who serve as excellent role-models, mentors, and occasionally, cautionary tales. His website can be found at ibsonwrites.ca. He is married to the lovely Michelle, and they have cats.
Jamie writes under multiple CKP imprints. He co-edited the two “We Dare” anthologies with Chris Kennedy, and wrote short stories in the Four Horsemen anthologies “Luck is Not a Factor,” “Negotiation,” and “Set The Terms.” His first novel, “Gunboat Diplomacy,” is in the Four Horsemen Sagas series, co-written with Jason Cordova. His second book is set in the Fallen World universe, where his short story “Daimyo” (in from “From The Ashes”) was fully expanded into the novel, “Pacific Shogun.”
