I was born in 1963 in Jamaica but grew up in Canada since the age of seven. In 1980, at 17 and right out of high school, I joined the Canadian Armed Forces and spent the first five years in the Artillery then re-mustered to the Armoured Corps for another five. After the military I moved to Northern Ontario.
Fast forwarded to 1996 when we moved to Ottawa. This is where I began to write my first real book, Death's Door - Where Right and Glory Lead. I have always enjoyed reading science fiction so it was only natural that I developed an interest in writing sci-fi. I have now branched out from just science fiction to also include Essay and Fictional Shorts.
While writing is my passion, I also scuba dive and have a day job to pay the bills. That, and trying to keep up with my two very active kids.
I maintain my own modest web site at http://www.williamdesouza.ca and always look forward to feedback from you.
