VJ Books Presents Author Trevor Ferguson (aka John Farrow)!
Trevor Ferguson, a.k.a. John Farrow, was born November 11, 1947 in Ontario, Canada and was raised in Montreal. Ferguson is a Canadian literary novelist under his own name and a Canadian crime writer under the pen name, John Farrow. He is also a playwright.
In his mid-teens, he gravitated towards Canada's northwest where he worked on railway gangs, and also began to write, working at night in the bunkhouses. In his early twenties, he travelled and worked throughout Europe and the United States before returning to Montreal to write.
He has written 13 novels and 4 plays, all to extraordinary acclaim. His Emile Cinq-Mars crime series has been published around the world and cited by Booklist as "one the best series in crime fiction today", while Die Zeit in Germany suggested that it might be the best series ever.
Ferguson is a past chair of the Writers' Union of Canada. He has been a writer-in-residence at the University of Alberta, an invite d'honneur at the Salon des Livres in Montreal, and he was among the Quebec authors invited as special guests of the Paris Book Fair in 1999, and to the Guadalajara Book Fair in 2003. In 2002, he was one of the few Canadian writers invited to the Festival of the Americas in Paris. Also in 2002, he served on the faculty of the May Writers' Studio at the Banff Centre for the Arts. He has frequently taught creative writing at Concordia University.
