B.J. Thompson at a Glance...

"Oh, to assess life through the clarity of a crystal cocktail glass and a picture window. A universe of thought awaits." ~ Barbara Thompson


Pen Names:

Barbara Thompson, B. J. Thompson



Barbara Thompson is a retired public relations liaison, a Calgary, Canada-based freelance editor, leader of an avant-garde writers process group likened to the 1920s Paris Montparnasse "Lost Generation" of artists and writers and an author of five books:

* No More Blood - Epilogue on the Life of Truman and In Cold Blood
* Eighteen Minutes to the Beast - a Nixon Watergate Thriller
* Sessions - Predator vs. Shrink Who will survive?
* BeaverTales - A Child's Memoir (permafree)
* STOP Not Writing - A No B.S. Guide to Avoid the Avoidance Tricks of a Non-writing Writer

All available in paperback and e-book versions at Amazon Books
The overriding theme in Barbara's work concerns the process of death, whether it be death of an historical icon, an idea or an event, her works cover those final moments when ultimate truth plays the only role. Barbara’s preferred way to tell a tale is through the Non-Fiction Novel approach; whereby iconic people and/or milestone moments in the past are tweaked and warped ever so slightly to reveal an answer to a long-held mystery or a societal question.

Barbara grew up in the Lake Country District of southern Ontario, Canada. The only child to an RCMP Constable father and Industrial Accountant mother, who grew up very Anglo-Saxon, very Northern Irish. Funeral wakes were a large part of Barbara's life, starting at the tender age of three, so death—its meaning and role in life—took center stage. 



* No More Blood - "In this elegantly written novel accounting the last few hours of Truman Capote’s life, Barbara Thompson delivers a masterpiece." "From the moment I started reading Barbara Thompson’s No More Blood: Epilogue on the Life of Truman Capote & In Cold Blood, I realized this is one of those books confirming that good literature is still possible nowadays."  

* Eighteen Minutes to the Beast - "FABULOUS MUST-READ! - Bravo! An imaginative and lively vintage/modern fusion techno-thriller from an author that I think is on the ultimate integration vector for readers to pick up on." 

* Sessions - "Made my head spin! - This was a real thrill ride! The plot was very well executed, and I honestly didn't see that ending coming. Made it hard to keep straight what was real versus imagined. So many OMG moments!" 

* BeaverTales - "Excellent Writing - Really kept my interest. Well written and suitable for all ages. Descriptions really added to the story. Looking forward to more books by this author." 

* STOP Not Writing - "If you are looking for something to kick-start your writing process, this book is highly recommended." "I fell off the writing path for some time, but I feel this book gave me the swift kick in the butt that I needed."
