About Andre Farant

I studied English Literature at Carleton University. Since then I have developed an indescribably aimless resume.

I have worked as a security guard, a Court Services Officer, a model, an actor, a teacher of English as a second language, a project coordinator for an NGO, and a Research Officer with the Government of Canada.

I have eaten whale in Iceland, live octopus in South Korea, and beaver tail in Canada.

I am a working writer and have had pieces published in Micro Horror, Weird Year, The Midwest Literary Magazine, and the “Off Season” anthology.

I currently reside in Montreal, Quebec.


Review by: Carol on Sep. 2, 2013 :
A great mystery-thriller with its own Nessie-style lake monster. The Quebec setting was a nice touch.

This is a great story that gives a whole new twist to the mythological lake creature/surviving dinosaur story with an alternative view set around Deer Lake in Quebec. Farant blends mystery and mythology with science, conspiracy and greed with some superb story telling and excellent characters. The only downside to this novel for me was Benning who I found a little too larger than life but this didn't really detract from the enjoyment of the story and the ultimate finale where everything becomes clear with many a mystery solved and a small town put on the map. A great story that is well worth a read...just maybe not on your next lake holiday!

Deer Lake offers readers an amusing and modern spin on the age-old question of the existence of mythology creatures. This book impressed me with an original plot and fascinating characters. A great summer read!

Review by: Peyton Reynolds on March 6, 2012 :
Deer Lake is a well-written blend of mystery, humor, and horror. The characters are quirky but believable, the plot perfectly paced and never uninteresting.
This is a flat-out fun read, and I look forward to more by this author.
