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. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Having the time I need--time for my family; time for my friends; time for my writing career; time to just sit back and read a good book and not be so rushed all the time.

Oh yeah, and there's a little something called the NYTimes Bestseller list. That wouldn't hurt, either.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Being a good father to my kids. After that, getting published.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I have no regrets. People make mistakes. It's all part of learning. As long as you learn from them, even a "bad" experience can be valuable. Hell, sometimes even more.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. On Oprah with my book. Next to that, I'd be up in a cabin on Whistler mountain, or in a cottage in Maui with my family, my laptop, and a good book to read.
