(1964-    ) Canadian-born film and television producer whose Softwire sequence, beginning with The Softwire: Virus on Orbis 1 (2006) and ending with The Softwire: Awakening on Orbis 4 (2010), follows the Young Adult experiences of a "softwire" – a human capable of interaction with various forms of information-saturated Technology – in a Space Opera frame. Haarsma has created a computer Role Playing Game for this world, The Rings of Orbis, which can be played free online, though some sections can only be unlocked by passwords which require familiarity with the physical books.
