Donald Cowper was born in Toronto, and has been writing all his life. His first work, Flying to Space, was a story about aliens abducting a young boy and taking him on a joy ride to Mars—written at the age of seven, and as yet unpublished. His lifelong obsession with both history and paranormal phenomena is what inspired The Black Suits trilogy, for which research included self-guided walking tours of Manhattan as well as several viewings of Casablanca and The X-Files reruns. Truly a hardship.
Donald is a professional member of the Canadian Authors Association, the DNA Writers Study Group and a former member of and contributing writer to the Canadian UFO Research Network. He has coauthored five narrative non-fiction books, one of which became the number 1 business book in Canada. His most recent book was praised by best-selling authors Tim Ferriss (The 4-hour Workweek), Michael Gerber (The E-Myth) and Daniel Pink (Drive).
He writes fiction at night and by day is a marketing director and coauthor of a popular business advice column on Inc.com.
