Terry Fallis

Award-Winning & Best-Selling Novelist


A two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, Terry Fallis is the award-winning author of seven bestsellers, including his most recent comic novel, Albatross, published in August.

Terry earned a degree in Engineering in 1983 from McMaster where he had become engulfed in university politics, including a term as President of the Students Union. Following graduation, he held staff positions over the next 5 years in federal and provincial politics. He then worked with Hill & Knowlton as a government affairs and communications consultant until 1995 when he co-founded Thornley Fallis, a full-service communications consultancy agency with offices in Ottawa and Toronto.

His debut novel, The Best Laid Plans won the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour in 2008 and his fourth book, No Relation, won again in 2015. Three more of his books have been finalists in their respective years.

Different Drummer Books will be present with a selection of Terry’s books and Terry will be pleased to sign all purchases.
