Don Perrin (born 1 October 1964) is a Canadian writer and former military officer.[1][2] Born in Iserlohn, Germany, Perrin grew up in Kingston, ON, Canada, McMasterville, QC, Canada, Bromley, Kent, England, and Ottawa, ON, Canada. Perrin served in the Canadian Corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, in the Canadian Department of National Defence.[1] He holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Physics from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1987.[1]

Perrin was married to Margaret Weis[3] (though they are now divorced)[4] for whom he acted as an advisor on the final Star of the Guardians novel, Ghost Legion (in which he also appears as a character). The couple co-authored the Mag Force 7 novels.

Perrin is also a contributor to the Dragonlance novels associated with Advanced Dungeons and Dragons.

Don Perrin, Michael Cosentino and Kathyrn Plamback purchased the two US wargaming magazines, "The Courier" and "MWAN" and combined them into the Historical Miniature Gamer Magazine in 2005. This magazine won the Nonfiction Publication of the Year Award at the 32nd Annual Origins Awards. The magazine offered articles on wargaming/wargames (of widely varied periods), tips on painting, building hints, scenarios, reviews of wargaming books, rules, miniatures and a monthly column by Howard Whitehouse. In 2007 James Manto was brought in as editor-in-chief to help with the organization and structure of the articles. Taking advantage of Perrin's QPOD (Quality Printing on Demand) in-house printing (where small numbers of books, rules, supplements can be printed inexpensively) the magazine underwent a complete overhaul to an easy to hold quarterly magazine. The magazine was closed in 2008.

He lives in Beloit, Wisconsin.[5]
