R.E. Stansfield is a transplanted prairie person now living “upshore” in Port Hilford, Nova Scotia. Born and bred in Regina, Saskatchewan, Ron enjoyed a distinguished three decade-long career in the international affairs field before retiring to the Maritimes, including postings to the Canadian embassies in South Korea and The Netherlands, and the International Atomic Energy Agency in Austria. Gleefully freed finally from the constraints of government bureaucratese, he takes his inspiration now from the open ocean which he swears looks just like the waving wheat fields back home in “Sasky.” He writes in all genres and is currently dividing his time among a number of new literary adventures. Twenty-One Ways to Die in Saskatchewan is his first book.
