Harvey Chute was born and raised in the Fraser Canyon village of Lytton, British Columbia - a town rich in native culture and colonial gold rush history.

In his high school and university years, Harvey spent his summers guiding whitewater raft trips on the Thompson and Fraser rivers, and relating historical lore and legends to his guest rafters.

Harvey received a Bachelor of Science degree from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, where his elective studies included the history of B.C. and of western Canada.

He works as a program manager for an international Information Technology consulting firm. Harvey also created the web's largest independent Kindle user forum, KBoards.com, which is popular with both readers and authors.

Harvey lives in Bellingham, Washington, with his wife, three daughters, a lovable golden retriever, and a stern cat. He enjoys walking mountain trails, learning blues guitar, and being surrounded by great books.

His first novel, Stone and Silt - a mystery based in 1860s British Columbia - was published in August 2013. Harvey's previously published works include five technical guides in the "For Dummies" series by Wiley Inc. 


  1. I can say... I knew Harvey when... Can't wait to ready your book!

    1. Ah, a voice from the past! Thank you so much, Beth!

  3. Good morning Harvey...I'm not sure if this is the proper place for this so I apologize in advance if it is not. I am having difficulty getting registered for kindle boards and I noticed you are one of the moderators. I am unable to locate a "contact' page on the forum. Are you able to provide any help with this. It tells me I need to register and sends an email to me but I have yet to receive any confirmation email. Again, I apologize f I am wasting your time. Thanking you in advance for your attention to this matter.....randyw2654@hotmail.com

  4. Hi Harvey - I couldn't find a way to contact you at Kindleboards, so here I am, the new kid on the block. I'm very excited to be a part of such a positive community. I've been a journalist for 25 years and am now (after many years of crippling self-doubt) making the leap to book-writing! Thank You for all you do for the Kindleboards community. It's a noble endeavor.

    Best Wishes,
    Stacey Morris
