The Writer as Escape Artist

D.E.  grew up in small towns, where characters tell stories. Writing for a local paper demanded discipline and understanding readers. Becoming a successful playwright brought rhythm to the words and a way with deft characterization. Business writing demanded research, brevity, and exciting copy for a global market.

Always curious, still surprised, D.E. works to create intriguing worlds that we want to visit again and again.

D.E. Ring is Full Member of Crime Writers of Canada and Playwrights Guild of Canada.

The Book Commentary

stunningly imagined and skillfully executed. … characters are multi-dimensional and relatable … a tale that is as much about unraveling a mystery as it is about unraveling the intricacies of human nature … the kind of entertainment readers hope to find in mystery thrillers. I read it straight through the night.
