Mark Zuehlke grew up in the Okanagan Valley of BC hearing stories of British remittance men. Fascinated by both the actual stories and romantic myths, Zuehlke made them the subject of his first work of history—Scoundrels, Dreamers & Second Sons.

Zuehlke's many books include the Canadian Battle Series; the Military Heritage Series; and his award-winning Elias McCann Series centred around a modern-day remittance man.

In 2014, Zuehlke won the prestigious Governor General's Award for Excellence in Popular Media, also known as the Pierre Berton Award. He lives in Victoria, BC.
