After 40 years as a journalist and journalism instructor, D’Arcy decided it was time to put his writing skills to work in a fictional way. And so he’s created a mystery series featuring Paul Burke, an ex-pro cyclist from Montréal, Canada who lives on the French Riviera and is killing time while figuring out what to do next. Trouble, however, is never far away from Burke wherever he is in Europe. To ensure the authenticity of the areas (and the food, wine and beer) he writes about, D’Arcy and his wife Lynda spend six weeks each year in Europe cycling the areas featured in his next novel and discussing plot strategies. (Suggestion: Never discuss murdering someone while you’re in a public place.) When he’s not pounding on his keyboard, D’Arcy is a Celtic musician. He lives in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
