About J P Roszell

A Canadian, JP lives near Georgian Bay on the Great Lakes with his partner, Sylvia. He has two grown sons, Chris and John, who have expanded the family to include his daughter-in-laws Larissa and Andrea.


His love of the water, and indeed all things nautical, is rooted in his early childhood in the Canada / U.S. border village of Corunna, on the St. Clair River. Moving at age 16 to Hamilton, a major harbour and steel town, reinforced his fascination with working boats and gave him an appreciation for those who toil for a living.


JP holds a B.A. in Political Science from McMaster University, Hamilton and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from York University, Toronto - whose business school has been recognized as one of the top 20 in the world by Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, Business Week and the Economist.


Extensive travel throughout the world has been a hallmark of JP's career, particularly to third world countries and regions like those he chooses as settings for his writing. He has visited all of the continents excepting Antarctica. His preference for relatively warm climates makes that possibility remote.


His many ‘careers’ have included, but are not limited to, senior executive positions with a number of multinational corporations and owning a yacht dealership.  Mr. Roszell is also a business coach, mentor and consultant through his firm Roszell & Associates.


JP is comfortable rubbing elbows with the elite as well as those who make their living along the shadowy edges of society.
