FORD, John-James




Author Tags: Fiction

Of Welsh and Gypsy background, John-James Ford was born in Kindersley, Saskatchewan on May 30, 1972. He studied at the Royal Military College in Kingston and at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton prior to his arrival in B.C. in 1997 to plant trees with ForestCraft. He opted to stay in Victoria "after falling in love with the fruit from the Okanagan." As a Canadian Foreign Service Officer, he has been posted to Ottawa where he lives with his family. His poetry and short fiction have been published in Grey Borders, Papertiger, qwerty, Carousel and Prairie Fire. He says he still hasn’t seen a cent from providing handclaps on Sam Roberts’ hit radio single, 'Brother Down.'
