As a police officer, Sommerville works in Canada's poorest slum, the Downtown East Side—an area rife with poverty, mental illness, drug use, prostitution, and gang warfare. He has investigated everything from frauds and extortions to homicides. Sommerville has written numerous columns and editorials for the city newspaper. When not patrolling the “Skids,” Sean is working hard on the next novel in the Jacob Striker series.

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Do what you love, and never give up.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I have no regrets. People make mistakes. It's all part of learning. As long as you learn from them, even a "bad" experience can be valuable. Hell, sometimes even more.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Like" and "totally" and "I've fallen and I can't get up." Ugh.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. A photographic memory

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. On Oprah with my book. Next to that, I'd be up in a cabin on Whistler mountain, or in a cottage in Maui with my family, my laptop, and a good book to read.
