About Christopher G. Moore

Canadian Christopher G. Moore is the creator of the award-winning Vincent Calvino Private Eye series and the author of the Land of Smiles Trilogy.

In his former life, he studied at Oxford University and taught law at the University of British Columbia. He wrote radio plays for the CBC and NHK before his first novel was published in New York in 1985, when he promptly left his
tenured academic job for an uncertain writing career, leaving his colleagues thinking he was not quite right in the head.

His journey from Canada to Thailand, his adopted home, included some time in Japan in the early 1980s and four years in New York in the 1980s.

In 1988, he came to Thailand to harvest materials to write a book. The visit was meant to be temporary. Twenty years on and 21 novels and a non-fiction later, he is still in Bangkok and far from having exhausted the rich Southeast Asian literary materials.

His novels have so far been translated into Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai, and Turkish. He is published by Heaven Lake Press in Thailand, by Grove/Atlantic in the United States, and Atlantic Books in the United Kingdom.

His Vincent Calvino series has been optioned for a feature film.
