Sean Slater is the pseudonym for Vancouver Police Officer Sean Sommerville. As a police officer, Sommerville works in Canada's poorest slum, the Downtown East Side—an area rife with poverty, mental illness, drug use, prostitution, and gang warfare. He has investigated everything from frauds and extortions to homicides. Sommerville has written numerous columns and editorials for the city newspaper. When not patrolling the “Skids,” Sean is working hard on the next novel in the Jacob Striker series.

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Do what you love, and never give up.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Probably my dark sense of humour.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Anyone who stands up for a cause while putting themselves in true jeopardy. Not so much in a country like Canada, where anyone can call themselves an "anarchist" and face no greater repercussion than a loitering ticket. But for someone like the unknown "Tank Man" in Beijing. That man confronted death. People like that are impressive.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Like" and "totally" and "I've fallen and I can't get up." Ugh.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Genocide, and people who drive too slow in the fast lane.
