Dale Ivan Smith author photoAbout Dale Ivan Smith

A life-long resident of the Pacific Northwest, Smith credits his mother with starting him down the writing path. As a five-year-old, he glimpsed the cover of a sci-fi novel she was reading and instantly became a convert, writing his own fiction throughout childhood and beyond. His literary path led him to work as a librarian for 32 years for the Multnomah County Library system in Portland, Oregon. A prolific author as well, he has published several science fiction books, including the Empowered and the Agents of Sorcery Series. He retired to write full-time in 2019 and is currently at work on his first mystery series, The Meg Booker Librarian Mysteries, set in the 1980s.
