Author Daniel Kalla

Daniel Kalla is a pretty amazing person.  He has managed to develop a very successful writing career while maintaining his day (and sometimes night) job as an emergency room physician in Vancouver.

His first novel was Pandemic, which became a best seller. And he followed that up with five more books which have all become international best sellers.

His latest novel is a bit of a departure.  It's set in Shanghai at the beginning of the second World War.  The Far Side of the Sky is based on a part of history that seems largely over looked these days.
