Biography

My most recent novel is The Demonologist, a #1 bestseller in Canada, a Top Ten Mystery/Thriller for Publisher's Weekly in Spring 2013, and an Amazon 20 Best Books of the Year. It's about a professor of literature, specializing in Milton's Paradise Lost, who comes to believe that his lost daughter - a presumed suicide - has been taken by one of the demons from the poem he has taught all his life. The Demonologist is being developed for feature film by ImageMovers (Robert Zemeckis' production company) and Universal Pictures.

Prior to this, my other novels include The Guardians, which was a Globe and Mail Best Book and is about shared secrets of long-time male friendship, the horrors of turning 40, hockey...and a haunted house. Before that is The Killing Circle, which is about what happens when a wannabe novelist steals another wannabe's story and the villain from that story is given life in the so-called "real world." It was selected as a Notable Crime Novel of the Year in The New York Times. Then there's The Wildfire Season, about a man who must pass through a forest fire that has encircled a remote town in order to save his ex-girlfriend and the daughter he met for the first time only days earlier. The Trade Mission has been called a "modern Heart of Darkness" and involves a pair of overnight dot-com millionaires (remember them?) brutally confronting non-virtual reality after being pursued in the Brazilian jungle. Finally (or originally) there's Lost Girls, which was a New York Times Notable Book and Globe and Mail Best Book, won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel, and concerns a defence lawyer who believes he's being visited by the ghosts of two girls, the presumed victims of a double murder committed either by his client...or the Lady of Lake, a local myth who waits to pull others down into the lake outside town...

I also have a law degree from the University of Toronto I've never used, and a B.A. and M.A in English Literature from McGill University which have proved considerably more handy. I live in Toronto.
