About the Author

Richard Wakefield is a professional firefighter for the City of Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, a self-taught amateur geologist, and a software developer. He was the Liaison for the Ontario Committee of Correspondence (OASIS) and was on the Executive Committee for the Ontario Skeptics. His main interest is the Precambrian Canadian Shield. Currently he is studying the rocks of the complex Grenville Supergroup, not far from his home. Wakefield attended the University of Toronto part-time where he studied zoology and physics. He hopes to return to university to finish his degree and eventually get his PhD in geology. He lives, with his wife and four children, in Pickering, Ontario.
