After a long career with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Canada Customs & Excise Don Atkinson formed his own security consulting business. One of his contracts brought him back to work with the government as a member of its task force on counter terrorism. In the mid-1970s Atkinson began writing short stories and media articles. In 1995 his first novel, Nations Within, was published in Ottawa by Centurion Publishing & Marketing. In 1997 one of his stories, "Rapture," was included in Winning Shorts, an anthology published by General Store Publishing House. The author currently lives in Alliston, Ontario with his wife, an accomplished artist.
