Bill Haugland was born in Montreal and attended Sir George Williams University, for one year, before taking courses in broadcasting at Ryerson Institute, Toronto. His 45 year career with CFCF Television News, (now CTV Montreal,) as a reporter, programme-host and anchorman provided him with a wealth of material for his novels.
His two, published novels propel a young TV reporter, Ty Davis, into life-threatening scenarios involving Montreal’s underbelly. Ty and his colleagues face the wrath of the Mafia and the Hell’s Angels in “Mobile 9.” In “The Bidding,” they are confronted by a vicious, Satanic cult with international roots in the 19th century and a powerful corporate and political influence in the 1970’s.
Bill retired from CTV Montreal in 2007 and lives in Vermont with his wife, Linda. He is currently working on a collection of short stories, while planning to fashion new adventures for a possible third Ty Davis Mystery.
