  • Born: in Antrim, Ireland.

  • Description: The invention of the ebook, just like the University of Toronto's Academic Bridging program, gave me the opportunity I needed to prove myself. Because of them, a runaway who had to sleep in a shopping cart at sixteen, a high-school dropout with seemingly no prospects, went on to live in the best city in the world, meet the best woman in the world and marry her, attain two degrees from one of the top forty universities in the world, before achieving his dream of being a full-time author and having one of the best-selling science fiction series in the world. The success of the series has also allowed me to adapt the novels for film, as I directed a proof-of-concept short film, and has given me the opportunity to become a TEDx speaker, speaking on the incredible potential and existential risk of post-humanity and superintelligent artificial intelligence. I couldn't be more grateful to my readers and fans of the series!
