After a career editing children's animated television shows, Aaron Saunders pursued his love of ships and the sea. He writes regularly about the cruise industry for the Vancouver Province newspaper, Canadian Traveller, Avid Cruiser, Sherman's Travel, and is the Canadian correspondent for shipping trade magazine Shippax CFI. He is the author of two books on maritime history: Giants of the Seas (Seaforth Publishing, 2013) and Stranded (Dundurn Press, 2015). When not at sea, he makes his home in the surprisingly land-locked city of Calgary, Canada.
