Derek Borne is a Canadian author who lives in “the prettiest town in Ontario” with his jewelry making wife and moody bearded dragon Ziggy. Always telling stories since a young age, he first wrote The Ultimate Agent at fourteen and kept writing as a hobby until finally publishing. When he isn’t writing, he’s selling olive oil and aged balsamic, belting out Phantom of the Opera, playing guitar, playing hockey, and making movie references daily. Oh, and impatiently waiting for the next superhero movie to come out.
