Steve Burrows - Ornithologist

Steve Burrows


Steve considers himself extremely fortunate to be able to travel all around the world pursuing his twin passions of writing and birding.

Steve first began exploring nature in the urban parks of his childhood home in Birmingham, United Kingdom. After a career as a travel and environmental journalist in Asia, Steve moved to Canada where he decided to turn his hand to fiction.

Merging his love of birding and detective stories, he created the award-winning Birder Murder Mystery series. Though his speaking engagements and research trips now take him all over the world, Steve's home base is Oshawa, Ontario, where he lives with his wife and muse, Resa.
