Ian McKercher lives in the Glebe area of Ottawa with his wife, Amelia.
His apprenticeship to writing began accidentally at age thirteen when he was given a day-diary for Christmas. Teaching English at Glebe Collegiate for twenty-five years amidst thoughtful colleagues and curious students kept him engaged with the printed word. His writing flows from a belief that Canada has an esteemed but undiscovered history that is ripe for acknowledgement.
The popular response to his first novel, The Underling (published in 2012), encouraged him to write The Incrementalist as a sequel.
