About the Author – John D Kingston

Picture of AuthorJohn currently lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and is happily retired with his lovely wife Lorna.

John achieved his B.A. in Economics as well as his MBA from the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada. He also received his CFP (Certified Financial Planner) designation following graduation from the College for Financial Planning in Denver, Colorado.

John worked as Chief Financial Officer for a Canadian computer services company, and Vice-President Finance for a national advertising company prior to his long career in the financial services industry,  John lived in the United States for more than thirty years working in the financial services industry, with most of that period as a Registered Investment Advisor, working in a No-Commission, Fee-Only Advisory capacity.

John wrote quarterly newsletters over that thirty year period, addressing political, economic and market related issues and has always enjoyed the macro-economic perspective.

The Level Playing Field is his first book, and was developed as a consequence of character building the protagonist in chapter two of his originally intended book about cross-border business and party politics. “This story was too compelling to not develop”, he says.  There may be another book coming!

That is of course if you can get him away from family, golf and boating.  He is looking forward to their first grandchild, will go almost anywhere for a game of golf (weather permitting), and will tow his 17′ Scout Sportfish to almost any attractive body of water.

I hope you enjoy my book and/or website focus, and look forward to hearing from you.
