Jeff Pearce has traveled far and wide to get his unique stories. For his landmark history, PREVAIL, he tracked down survivors from the Italian-Ethiopian War of the 1930s and 40s, and he uncovered shocking records about Britain's role during the conflict in London archives. For WINGED BULL, his new biography of archaeologist and adventurer Henry Layard, he went all the way to Iraq to interview Kurdish defence forces -- less than two kilometres away from a town controlled by ISIS. And in 2005, he briefly taught journalism in Myanmar. His book of investigative journalism, GANGS IN CANADA, has been adopted as a textbook for criminology, and his science fiction and fantasy works, such as THE KARMA BOOTH and REICH TV, have earned critical praise from indie reviewers as well as a loyal following. He has also had success in the theater world. His stage play, LADY WITH A SMOKING GUN, was chosen to open PL.A.Y Noir in Los Angeles in 2018. In 2015, his history of sex in Canada, HOW TO MAKE LOVE IN A CANOE, was adapted into a hilarious musical-comedy production by the University of Toronto's Theatre Erindale. And in 2007, his play, DEFENDERS OF GRAVITY, was chosen by a professional panel to inaugurate the Playwrights of Spring Festival in Toronto.
