Introducing Alex Lyttle
We're very pleased and proud to introduce the newest author to the Central Avenue cache of amazingly talented human beings, Alex Lyttle.
Alex is a pediatrician living in Calgary, Alberta with his wife and three children. He was raised in London, Ontario - the setting of his first novel, From Ant to Eagle, which he wrote based on his experiences working in the Pediatric Oncology unit. When he is not working, writing or playing basketball, he enjoys learning new magic tricks to perform for his young patients.
From Ant to Eagle is his first novel and it follows an 11-year-old boy through a tumultuous time in his and his family's life. We'll post more on his fantastic book once we've finished the cover and worked through all the details. It will be published in April 2017.
