At a very young age, Mr. Wilson followed in his parent’s footsteps and became an avid reader.

Mr. Wilson entered the Surrey Creative Writing Program and began his first attempts at writing. By the time he received his certificate, Mr. Wilson had had numerous articles about growing up in Whalley’s Corner published in the Vancouver Sun, Pioneer News and the Salt’n Paper.
What the young people accomplished in Hungary in 1956 always fascinated him. He had read numerous non-fiction accounts of what took place and decided to write his novel, A Reluctant Revolutionary published by iUniverse in 2007.
The author's second novel Realms of Flimenia Jeremy’s Journey was published by iUniverse in 2008.
