What does a copywriter do when he’s not at work? This one writes. My first novel, Almost AlmostCrim_Orig_cover_shadowCriminal, was critically praised in Canada and the US, and nominated for an Edgar Award (alongside Stephen King… we both came in second) and an Arthur Ellis Award, and named a Book of the Year by the 49th Shelf.   It was just released in Japanese translation.

The Globe & Mail said it’s “funny and twisted in the same vein as Breaking Bad... This is Brown’s debut and it’s an auspicious one.” For more on the novel, please visit www.erbrown.com.AlmostCrim_Japan_cover_blue_red_shadow

As an author, I’m E.R. Brown, not Eric. A British sci-fi writer beat me to my own name, can you believe it?
