Lloyd Pilling Tosoff began his writing career in 2010, penning two non-fiction books on leadership, after leaving a four decade career that culminated as a primary leader and chief executive in an award winning Canadian company. Although his entry into the literary world was late, Lloyd has been a prolific author with eight published works to his credit, and two completed manuscripts awaiting publication.

He retired in 2009 from his role as a chief executive and visionary leader, to pursue his creative interests.
Lloyd’s newest work, Black Diamond Conspiracy is set in Canada during the 1980s and is about the underground contraband scene prolific at the time.
