John Brooke


John Brooke grew up in Toronto but moved to Montreal in the mid-’80s, a time when many other anglos were heading west, fleeing the politics of Quebec. John has worked in film and television, and as a freelance business writer and translator. His first published fiction, The Finer Points of Apples, a story of inter-language love during the Referendum, won the Journey Prize and became the impetus for Last Days of Montreal.

John Brooke lives in Montreal, near Marché Jean-Talon Market and Parc Jarry.
He gathers information on the world of French police for his novels during regular trips to a village in France with his French-born love Annie.

John has also published poetry, journalism and novels.
