Tom Koppel

Local journalist and author Tom Koppel grew up in New York City. As a young writer, he happened on Salt Spring Island while travelling the west and, like so many other islanders, decided to stay. He found success writing for magazines about his new rural community and surrounding region.

Tom and his photographer wife have published many international travel articles from their years of exploration in places as remote as Antarctica, Fiji, Mongolia and Greenland. Tom has also written several books, though he remains a journalist at heart. “Every one of my books has evolved from a series of magazine articles,” he says.
