Dead Rock Stars

When Wes Funk's sort-of memoir Dead Rock Stars hit the shelves in 2008, it quickly became a hit across western Canada, including being a pick-of-the-month for several book clubs and the subject on numerous Canadian television and radio talk shows. It was short-listed in The Readers' Choice Award Category of the Sask Book Awards and received an Honourable Mention in Writers' Digests' International Self-Published Book Competition. It has also been incorporated into both high school and university curricula.

Xander Richards      Coast Xander Richard

Xander Richards describes himself as ‘an ordinary fella with regular interests and pastimes’.  These include cars, photography, movies (especially spy movies) and garage sales.  Xander lives in Saskatchewan, Canada with his wife Mindy.  They have four adult children and four grandchildren.

Canadian espionage writer Xander Richards was born in the early sixties in an unremarkable town in western Europe to parents whose stories of their wartime military experience enthralled him and stoked the fires of his imagination.  Inspired by Fleming’s James Bond novels, Cussler’s Dirk Pitt adventure books, Clancy’s espionage thrillers, Alistair MacLean’s action stories and many other suspense and spy thrillers, he started writing fiction at an early age.
