Since he was fourteen years old, competitive cycling has been the constant in the life of Patrick D. Ferris. He races bicycles on-road and off-road, as well as completing an Ironman Triathlon. Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1954, Pat Ferris grew up in Victoria then moved to Fort St. John in 1975 to pursue his trade in the rapidly expanding natural gas industry. In 1997 he left the gas industry to start "Ferris Fast Cycles", a specialty bike shop, with his family. At this shop, he met a variety of interesting characters of all stripes and backgrounds. He also found out that a long "North Peace" winter is an ideal time to try his hand at novel writing. After many years of tinkering with different ideas and drafts, his first novel "Gypsies" emerged: a fictional tale of a relationship between outsiders intertwined with top level cycling. The sequel 'A Gypsy Engagement' soon followed with a third on the horizon. There are a few more novel projects coming, time permitting.
