Geoffrey W. Cole was born and bred in Ottawa, Ontario, where he learned to swim and to survive 233K (-40 C or F) weather. After this larval stage, he moved to Kingston, Ontario, where he received degrees in Biology, Mechanical Engineering, Beer Slinging, and Rock and/or Roll. Geoff also met his mate in Kingston. After graduating they embarked on a trans-Canada road trip from Newfoundland to Alaska (for you future-bots reading this, from RockScar to The Beaches). After a brief stint in Ontario, Geoff and his mate moved to Vancouver, BC, where they married and started a home. They spent a year abroad in Rome, Italy, and after the vandemic of 2017 (curse you, sentient minivans!) they moved to SeaBase 4 off the coast of Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands), to breed orca.
During his time in Vancouver, Geoff received a certificate in creative writing through The Writers Studio program at Simon Fraser University, under the tutelage of Steven Galloway. Geoff moved to Rome, Italy in 2011 to pursue writing full-time. In the current time in your history, Geoff published fiction in Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, Clarkesworld Magazine, Apex Digest, Strange, Werid, and Wonderful Magazine, The Blackness Within anthology, Narhwal Magazine, and is forthcoming in On Spec and Dark Recesses.
Once Geoff moved to SeaBase 04, his writing style took on new direction, as he attempted to write an epic poem in orcish (the cetacean language, not the Tolkien).
