Basil Jackson says, "Thank you, Canadian publishers, for rejecting me. You drove me to the United States and England." The Richmond novelist was a journalist for 17 years, five of them as science editor for The Financial Post, before turning to thrillers such as Terror Flight, State of Emergency and The Night Manhatten Burned, published in the U.K. and U.S. He sells pamphlets about novel writing through his Writers Help Bureau.
