Read information about the authorIn July 2010, Alex Carrick’s “The Size of the Skip” received an honorable mention in the prestigious and world-wide Lorian Hemingway Short Story Competition (based in Key West, Florida). For the second year in a row, he was short-listed in 2011 for “Caboose Follies”. But this is getting ahead of ourselves.
Alex carried out his undergraduate work at the University of Western Ontario (UWO), then received an M.A. in Economics from the University of Toronto (U of T). He also completed the first year towards a Doctorate while living at U of T’s Massey College.
The pull of the job market was too strong and Alex went to work for the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC) in 1972. The CISC is a trade association representing structural steel fabricators in Canada. Mr. Carrick eventually became the Secretary-Treasurer as well as the Economist for the CISC.
Since 1985, Alex has held the position of Chief Economist/Editor with CanaData, a division of Reed Construction Data (RCD), where he has acquired an in-depth knowledge of the Canadian construction industry.
Alex is often quoted in the media, especially in the two construction newspapers, the Daily Commercial News and the Journal of Commerce. He has delivered presentations throughout North America on the Canadian, United States and world construction outlooks.
In 2008, he first ventured into blogging and then in 2009, he started making videos on economic topics for various RCD web sites. This offered an exciting challenge that has required development of a whole new skill set.
Many of Alex’s award-winning short stories have been compiled in the Scoops series of books as well as the Ten Tales series. The former is comprised of “Two Scoops” Is Just Right, “Three Scoops” Is A Blast! and “Four Scoops” Is Over The Top.
The latter has seven titles (i.e., too numerous to mention here) and all of the books are set out on the Carrick Publishing website.
Alex is married with three children, plus a lazy dog and crazy cat that round out the household. Much of the family’s life revolves around the cottage on Georgian Bay. He resides in Toronto. His wonderful wife Donna is a well-known author in the crime and intrigue fields.
