Hosted by Terry MacLeod of Information Radio on CBC Radio One 89.3 FM.
Terry Fallis grew up in Toronto and went to McMaster University. Drawn to politics at an early age, he worked for Cabinet Ministers both at Queen’s Park and in Ottawa. His first book, The Best Laid Plans, began as a podcast, then was self-published, won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour, was re-published to great reviews by McClelland & Stewart, and was selected the 2011 winner of CBC’s Canada Reads competition.
His follow-up novel, The High Road was a finalist for the 2011 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour.
The Best Laid Plans is now in development by CBC Television as a six-part miniseries.
M&S will publish his third novel in September 2012. Terry Fallis is the head of the public relations agency Thornley Fallis and co-host of the popular business podcast, Inside PR.
He lives in Toronto with his wife and two children and blogs about his writing life.
