Born in British Columbia to French-Canadian and America parents, Deni Y. Béchard was living in Montreal when he published his first novel, Vandal Love (Doubleday, 2006), about a French-Canadian family that is divided by a genetic curse that makes the Hervé children either runts or giants. Largely set in B.C. and on Granville Island in particular, his follow-up Cures for Hunger (Goose Lane, 2012) was also published by Milkwood in the U.S.
