Charles Foran is a writer of novels, non-fiction, and journalism. He has published eight books, including the multi-award-winning The Last House of Ulster. Though raised in Toronto, he was reared, thanks to a French-Canadian mother, on the Montreal Canadiens. Maurice Richard, who retired from hockey the same year Foran was born, was mistaken by the boy for a local saint, so reverential were the evocations of his name among extended family members. Foran lives with his family in Peterborough, Ontario.
These books are...opportunities to deepen the relationship between Canadians of the past and Canadians of the present. May this dialogue continue, so that today's biographers themselves will be the subject of the next wave of writers." - The Globe and Mail
"The books would be a lovely addition to any library...they're accessible and ready to be read by all." - The Nova Scotian (Sunday Herald) "[the series is] entertaining, literary and informative." - The National Post
