Proud Canuck by birth, Brit by chance of fate, Anhedral trained as a
zoologist before making a career in conservation and ecology. In the
name of science he’s studied the habits of Soay sheep on St. Kilda,
radio-tracked seals across the Moray Firth, and counted seabirds in the
remotest bits of Orkney and Shetland. Anhedral still lives in Scotland;
these days he’s a music teacher, and he’s loving it.
Shamefully, Anhedral remained ignorant of the creative maelstrom that is
furry until 2012. A kindly wolf and a lovely fennec helped him to catch
up, and their warmth and generosity showed the fandom at its truest and
its best. Anhedral’s wife suffers his newfound addiction with bemused
tolerance, and for her love and support he remains extremely grateful.
When he’s not wrangling unruly sentences or scaring his flute students
with unplayable duets, Anhedral enjoys cycling, hill-walking, and
carting his camera to out-of-the-way places. He drinks too much coffee
for his own good, will never have time to get through all of the
brilliant fantasy and science fiction on his bucket list, and loves most
any critter that can fly.
