More About B.J. Thompson...

B. J. Thompson was born in 1964, in the lake country district of southern Ontario, Canada, to an RCMP Constable Father and Industrial Accountant Mother, an only child, who grew up very Anglo-Saxon, very Northern Irish. Funeral Wakes were like Olympic events, her first one at age three; hence, Death and the Past seem to be recurring themes throughout her works and blogs;

B.J. went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Language Arts with post-graduate work in Public Relations and Marketing, primarily working in the Travel and Broadcasting sectors. Retired now, she does free-lance editing, leads a avant-garde writers group likened after the 1920's Paris Montparnasse District style and continues to write literary novels centring on edgy, rather taboo topics.

What drives her is Creative Non-Fiction or rather the Trumanesque "Non-Fiction Novel" approach; whereby, real history - iconic persons, long-held ideals and/or milestone events in the Past - are tweaked and warped ever so slightly to reveal an answer to a long-held mystery or a societal question, folding in fictional characters and locales to colour the story and give it a rich feel, a more vibrant atmosphere, to make alive the fantasy within the reality.

B.J. is not pop-cultural nor commercial in her approach to her life or her author work, she certainly walks to the beat of a different drummer, but the noise she makes is lasting; the ripple effect, or shall we say the "tremor", long felt.
