Now living in Victoria where he doubles as Editor-in-Chief of Monday magazine, in 2011 Grant McKenzie signed a two-book deal in the U.S. with Midnight Ink to introduce mystery lovers to a sassy heroine named Dixie Dash. “As a rule-breaking reporter for alternative weekly San Francisco NOW, Dixie will do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of the stories she feels most passionate about.” As the series is written in first-person from Dixie’s point of view, McKenzie is adopting the pseudonym K.C. Grant.

Scottish-born Grant McKenzie, while living in Gibsons, published a debut thriller, Switch (Penguin $25), a mass-market paperback that has been translated into German, Russian and Chinese.
