UK flag (1920 - 2002)

aka Martin Brett, Malcolm Douglas

Ronald Douglas Sanderson was born in Kent, England, in 1920, emigrating to Canada in 1947 after a stint with the Merchant Navy and the R.A.F during WWII. Here he worked in a Kellogg's factory, as a jewelry salesman, and as a cabaret singer before publishing his first literary novel, Dark Passions Subdue, in 1952. Drawing inspiration from Mickey Spillane, Sanderson developed a leaner style and started writing hardboiled mysteries under the names Martin Brett and Malcolm Douglas.
