About the author

C. Edgar North
(AKA Glen Witter)


“I’m a fiction writer…I tell lies for a living.

My real name is Glen Witter but I have been writing fiction under the pen name of C. EDGAR NORTH. To date, I have completed six novels, all in the Action/Thriller/Espionage genre entitled:

  • NIGHTHAWK CROSSING;
  • NIGHTHAWK: AFRICAN ICE;
  • NIGHTHAWK: CHIEF HAZEL;
  • BLOOD, FIRE AND ICE;
  • NIGHTHAWK:THE DEACON; and
  • THE ART FLOGGER.

My writing is best labeled as verisimilitude as many real events that inspired the novels have been fictionalized. Experiences gleaned from working in over 30 countries enriches geographic detail and provides the opportunity to enlarge and fictionalize some characters.

I live in Summerland and, of course, local geography and situations pop up in many of the novels. The Similkameen, and Okanagan valleys are featured in three of the novels.

NIGHTHAWK CROSSING is the first in a four part series featuring high-level smuggling. BLOOD, FIRE AND ICE, on the other hand concerns “Big Oil” trying to stifle some Arctic researchers. THE ART FLOGGER follows the adventurous life of a fine art auctioneer who tangles with a drug cartel.

Ratings have been good. Amazon.ca and amazon.com both have many five star reviews. I also received 5 star reviews with Readers’ Favorite and others.

The books are available through the POD system as well as e-books and audio books.

A good example of “verisimilitude” is reflected in smuggling by helicopters across America’s Pacific Northwest border. Where I live, in the past ten years, there have been 7 helicopters seized for drug smuggling that I am aware of. Well after I published NIGHTHAWK CROSSING there was a “copycat” incident where smugglers were caught in a chase which straddled both side sf the border. The chase was similar to one in NIGHTHAWK CROSSING even using one of the landing sites mentioned in my book.
