Claude Bouchard


I was born in Montreal, Canada, at a very young age, where I still live with my spouse, Joanne, under the watchful eye of Krystalle and Midnight, two black females of the feline persuasion. In a former life, I completed my studies at McGill University and worked in various management capacities for a handful of firms for countless years. From there, considering my extensive background in human resources and finance, it was a logical leap in my career path to stay home and write crime thrillers.

My first stab at writing was actually in 1995, the result being my first novel, Vigilante. Two others of the same series followed by 1997 but all three remained dormant until publication in 2009. Since, besides writing a stand-alone, five other thrillers have joined the Vigilante series. I also penned Something's Cooking, a faux-erotica parody and cookbook under the pseudonyms Réal E. Hotte and Dasha Sugah. I have to say, I?m enjoying this writing gig.

Other interests besides writing and subtly persuading people to buy my books include reading, making noise with my six guitars, painting (oil and watercolour), cooking (year round though I love the grill in the summer), traveling and planning to work out soon. I've also been known to sleep on occasion.

  • A Girl Like You on March 06, 2011

    I just finished reading "A Girl Like You" and what can I say besides "Locke hasn't lost the touch one iota!" I've read all of John's novels to date and this most recent Donovan Creed is just as captivating, quirky and hilarious as all of its predecessors. I'm proud to call John a friend and damned happy that he's chosen to share his works with us.
