Ernie Palamarek has recently had feature articles published in national magazines and is the author of the Rune Erikson series of novels which begin to unfold in Canada and blossom in exotic locations around the world.
Having spent his boyhood growing up in the saddle on the Alberta cattle-ranching prairie, he has a keen appreciation for nature's wondrous beauty and its amazing resiliency which balances the eggshell fragility of the environment. He has worked in public relations for a major newspaper, in a research and development laboratory, in his own businesses, and in the service of a federal government agency.
Combining his eye for detail with a vivid imagination, he continues to roam the world in search of adventure - to observe, to listen, and to talk to wonderfully-different people in strange, exotic lands.
He experiences the adventure and journeys through life with his photographer wife, Sharon, who has a keen eye for detail and shares his passionate quest for adventurous travel.
The author has lived in Victoria, British Columbia since he was 20 years old. Vancouver Island, a temperate rainforest off Canada's west coast, is his backyard.
Along Came a Swagman is Palamarek's third novel.
