Ron Corbett is an author, journalist, and broadcaster living in Ottawa. The past recipient, and nominee, of Canada's National Newspaper Award, Ron has written a regular column for the Ottawa Sun, off and on, for more than 20 years. With his unique narrative style -- and an eye for the story, or person, which others have missed - his City Life column has become a popular Monday read in the Sun. As well as his newspaper and magazine work, Ron has written five books, including Canadian bestseller The Last Guide and One Last River Run, which began as a summer series in the Ottawa Sun. His latest book is A Grand Adventure: America's First Transcontinental Truck Run, which tells the story of George MacLean, an Ottawa-area man who piloted the first truck to drive across North America. Married to award-wining photojournalist Julie Oliver, Corbett has four children and lives within "a very short portage" of the Rideau River.
