Do you need words crafted by someone who loves them, understands them, and trains them to do tricks? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Edward Willett has been a writer almost as long as he’s been a reader. He wrote his first short story at age 11 and never looked back, writing three novels in high school before studying journalism at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, so he could go on writing on a full-time basis. During four years as a reporter, columnist, photographer and (why not?) editorial cartoonist at the weekly Weyburn Review, and five years as communications officer at the Saskatchewan Science Centre, he not only wrote thousands of words a week as part of his job, he wrote thousands more of fiction, honing his craft to a publishable level

In 1993 he became a full-time freelance writer, writing scripts, magazine articles, a weekly newspaper column and more before his first book (Using Microsoft Publisher for Windows 95) came out in 1995. His first novel, Soulworm, was published in 1997. Since then he’s written more 40 books of both fiction and non-fiction, running the gamut from children’s science books to local history books to biographies to, of course, science fiction and fantasy. His most recent novels include Marseguro (DAW Books), winner of the 2009 Aurora Award for best Canadian science fiction novel in English, and Magebane (also published by DAW Books, and written under the pseudonym Lee Arthur Chane) which received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, which called it “spectacular.” Recent non-fiction titles include Genetics Demystified (McGraw-Hill), A Safe and Prosperous Future: 100 Years of Engineering and Geoscience Achievements in Saskatchewan, Land Surveying in Saskatchewan: Laying the Groundwork for Property Rights and Development, and Historic Walks of Regina and Moose Jaw, which received a City of Regina Municipal Heritage Award.

In more than 30 years as a professional writer, Willett has written, in addition to all those books, advertising copy for radio, television and print; newspaper columns, entertainment previews and reviews, features and straight news stories; annual reports, technical articles, corporate profiles and advertorials; plays, limericks, short stories, blog posts, speeches…and just about anything else you can think of. (Copy for museum exhibits and historical sites? Yes, he’s done that, too!)
