More About B.J. Thompson...

* No More Blood - "In this elegantly written novel accounting the last few hours of Truman Capote’s life, Barbara Thompson delivers a masterpiece."

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 centre stage.
