Noah Chinn was born in Oshawa, Ontario, and has never really forgiven it for that. After high school he fled his hometown in favour of the freezing winters of Ottawa. Three years later it dawned on him that higher education and frostbite did not have to go hand in hand, and finished his degree in Toronto.Shortly after university he moved to Vancouver, where he met his future wife, Gillian. He then spent the summer bicycling across Canada, which she thankfully didn't misinterpret as him trying to get as far away from her as possible. They moved to Japan for three years, where he taught English yet managed not to learn a word of Japanese.It was during this time that he had a successful cartoon series called Fuzzy Knights, which centered on the exploits of toy animals playing Dungeons and Dragons, and an evil hamster trying to destroy them. Some have called this a cry for help.He later moved to England with dreams of making it big as a writer - because with a BA in English Lit it was either that or serving fries at a burger shack. Noah's first serious attempt at a novel, The Professional Tourist, was set in a Tokyo language school. Unstable students (and teachers), biker gangs, and the homeless underworld of the Blue Village all featured in this slightly askew romantic comedy.The book landed him an agent, but not a publisher. Unfortunately, in the way aspiring actors move to Hollywood and end up as busboys, the closest he came to literary success in England was working at several bookstores - each of which mysteriously closed down after his stay.After writing several more manuscripts and moving back to Canada, he found more success in the North American market. He and his wife now live in Vancouver.He now wears a hat.

What made the experience of listening to Trooper #4 the most enjoyable?I did not know what to expect coming into this book. It was a surprisingly interesting listen. The story starts out slow but really picks up and keeps you on edge as it progresses.What other book might you compare Trooper #4 to a...

This was an enjoyable little book. It moved along at a nice, streamlined clip and all the characters were likable and fleshed out gradually which can be a tricky thing to do. Maybe one or two scenes could have been added for better effect, for example: I would have liked to see Peter convince his fr...
