I was born in England, where I lived a more or less productive life under an assumed name. Then I found the love of my life, and moved to Canada in 1993. In Calgary, I discovered a new passion in my work, and founded the Emotional Fitness Institute.
Writing has been a part of me for thirty years. Under my birth name of Warren Redman I’m the author of 17 books of non-fiction, including a Canadian award winner for The 9 Steps to Emotional Fitness.
More recently, as Zev Bagel, I have turned to fiction and love it, with six novels completed or in progress.
Bernie Waxman & the Whistling Kettle is the first to be published, and was shortlisted in the Novel Prize category of the 2015 Atlantic Writing Competition.
I now live in Shediac, New Brunswick, with my lovely wife and two cats. I spend a lot of time looking out of my window at Shediac Bay instead of into my computer, where the next book lurks, waiting for me to release it.
