I’m Alastair Luft, an author, speaker, and 20-year veteran of the Canadian military. My debut novel, The Battle Within, was published in 2017, and my second novel, Jihadi Bride, will be available at the end of August, 2019. I’m a graduate of Humber College’s Graduate Certificate Program in Creative Writing, and I’m working on my third novel while taking a Master of Arts in Creative and Critical Writing through the University of Gloucestershire.
Beyond writing, I enjoy public speaking. I spoke on how violence begets violence at the 2017 Signal vs Noise event in Calgary, and in 2019 I spoke about how art can be a light in the darkness at the inaugural TEDx Don Mills event.
