BIO
Biography

Ron Thompson grew up in Saskatchewan. He has been a naval officer, development worker, civil servant, economist, investment banker, and consultant.

Ron's satiric first novel, A Person of Letters, was published in 2015.  His second novel, Poplar Lake, was published in October 2018. Terry Fallis, two-time winner of Canada’s Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, called Poplar Lake “a captivating story, rich with humour and heart. I didn’t want it to end.” “Thompson’s got everything here to make a great Canadian novel,” reviewer Bill Robertson said in the Star-Phoenix, “and he goes a long way to writing just that.” Ron's fiction has appeared in Canadian Voices (Bookland Press), his short compositions on the surrealist-inspired website Exquisite Corpse and his historical commentaries in the literary publication The Burney Letter.

Ron is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan, the University of Toronto, the London School of Economics, and the Humber School for Writers, and is a Chartered Financial Analyst.
