About the Author

Brendan Coyle

Brendan Coyle was born and raised in New Westminster, British Columbia, the youngest of 10 siblings. He always had a keen interest in ships and all things nautical, and he was determined to work in BC`s historic maritime industry. He earned his basic SCUBA certification at 14 and worked his way through the "ranks" from stints as a deckhand and commercial diver to journeyman fabricator/welder in the fishing and boat-building industries. He is now employed as a maintenance planner in ship repair.


Brendan`s freelance articles appear often in the Victoria Times Colonist. He has also written for the Vancouver Sun, Vancouver Province, Diver Magazine, and Canadian Diving Journal. His interest in Canadian and American military history, vintage aircraft and Canada`s north led him to write about the unknown war on North America`s West Coast. Brendan Coyle lives in Steveston, BC, with his wife, Melanie Arnis, and two daughters, Meghan and Rhianna.
