Welcome to my web site. I feel like adding said the spider to the fly. I'm writing to you from a sound-proofed bunker in my basement. I have a low tolerance for noise, one of the reasons that I prefer to write at night - sometimes all night. If you have questions about me or any of my books, I'll do my best to answer them. I really appreciate direct feedback from readers, especially the ones who like my books. It won't change the way I write my books and my answers may not change the way you read them, but at least we'll have closed that gap between writer and reader.
To send me an email, click here. Should I not respond to your queries or comments, please alert my publicist: Ashley Dunn at firstname.lastname@example.org (or 647-788-3976) and tell her of my inexplicable silence. See you on the literary hustings.
Praise for Wayne Johnston
Wayne Johnston is prodigiously talented.
-- The Globe and Mail
Wayne Johnston is a brilliant and accomplished writer and his Newfoundland boots and boats, rough politics and rough country, history and journalism is vivid and sharp.
-- Annie Proulx
Unlike most recent bestselling novels that are remembered for the plane flight and then promptly forgotten, Wayne's stories have characters who move in and take up permanent residence.
-- Mary Walsh
[Johnston is] a literary giant who has god-given talent.
-- Will Ferguson, The Globe and Mail
His books are beautifully written, among the funniest I've ever read, yet somehow at the same time among the most poignant and moving.
-- Annie Dillard
