D.G. Laderoute and his wife, Jackie, live in Thunder Bay, Ontario, along with their three kids – Andrew, Mark and Sarah-and the obligatory writer’s cats. He has a Master of Science Degree in Geology, has worked extensively in the mining and geo-science sectors, and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the Canadian Army Reserves. He and Jackie now run a successful business in Thunder Bay, The GameShelf, specializing in board, party, card and other unplugged games.

Laderoute has been writing off-and-on since 1990, and has had several short stories appear in various small press publications. Most notably, in 1999, he took second place in a contest sponsored by the Association of Computing Machinery, a consortium of major companies including Microsoft, Intel, Hewlett Packard, Apple and others. He has also written extensively for role-playing games, particularly The Legend of the Five Rings product line.Out of Time is Laderoute’s first novel-length publication, but doesn’t intend it to be his last!
