About the Author
ALAN E. SUTTON
Alan Eric Sutton was born in Vancouver, BC, Canada in 1945 and grew up above the family business on the banks of the Fraser River. All through his life he has loved fishing, hot rodding, drag racing, boating, and flying. After apprenticing as a machinist in the family business, he joined his brother in building the company into a substantial supplier to the mining industry. Meanwhile, as president of a flying club he wrote articles for the club newspaper. In this, his first novel, he employs his experiences traveling to Peru, Chile, and Argentina on business for the mining industry, and he also draws upon his years as a private pilot throughout Canada, the U.S., the Artic, Chile, and Australia. In particular, the rich folklore and desert landscape of Chile have inspired much of Venom Flight. Alan and his wife Sandi live in Surrey, BC and winter in Arizona. They have four children.
