Colin Duerden

" Award Winning Writer and Oceanographer "



Poetry, Fiction, Non-Fiction

What do you do in your creative field?

I am a writer not tied down to any specific genre. I write short stories, mystery thrillers, young adult and adult fiction and more.

What year did you start creating?

1985 or the late 1980s, but I have been writing since high school.

What influences your work? What makes it unique?

Bermuda and the oceans. I have a PhD in oceanography and my work is based on my experiences in Bermuda, where I was born and raised.

Anything Else?

I continue to write mystery thrillers, but when I get too involved in the dark side of thrillers, I switch to poetry to find balance. I have received many accolades for my writing in Canada, the United States and Bermuda.
