Author BIO

My name is Ian Janssen and I reside in Elliot Lake, Ontario, Canada with my wife, Jan. We have two grown children who have provided us with 4 lovely grandkids who appear in my stories. The location for The Perils of Pierre stories is based on our cottage near Thessalon, Ontario, Canada. So far, there are 5 books in the series and more are planned.

I was a police officer for 31 years and a home Inspector for almost 6 years. From this, the only writing I did was technical report writing. This series of books is my first venture into writing for entertainment. Pierre and Polly’s escapades were originally for the entertainment of my grandkids, but through the encouragement of family, I submitted them for publication. After numerous rejections, I was successful in getting them published with Wee Creek Press.

There are 5 books in the “Perils of Pierre” series with more to come.
