IN PRAISE OF

Fire Eyes
"Fire Eyes is a taut psychological thriller with literary overtones, a very contemporary terrorist romance."
—Globe and Mail

"A dynamite read. Combines a remarkable literary finesse with the tightly wound mainspring of a psychological thriller. A new writer of the very best."
— Andreas Schroeder, author of “Renovating Heaven”

Healing The Dead
"You start reading Healing the Dead with a gasp and never get a proper chance to exhale."
—Globe and Mail

"The author is not afraid to take a hard look at the darker side of human nature, at the source of fear and violence, and to explore their repercussions with unflinching honesty."
—Monday Magazine


The Good Lie
"Bailey's masterstroke is in creating a situation for his protagonist that is so believable the reader cannot help but feel complicit in the guilt and anguish of it all. With compelling, measured prose, he stakes out precious territory in a genre - located somewhere between thriller and psychodrama - that he makes completely his own."
—Quill & Quire Magazine

"Bailey has crafted a tale that not only looks at a universal theme but places it in a very West Coast context, making this one story that local readers are going to love."
—Boulevard Magazine


Exit From America
“Another great story of moral revelation, despair and redemption by a contemporary master.”
— Lawrence Russell, author of “Outlaw Academic”

"The writing is extremely good … an exquisitely crafted novel. Reminiscent of The Unbearable Lightness of Being."
— Aaron C. Brown, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer


 
About the Author
D.F. Bailey is a W.H. Smith First Novel Award and a Whistler Independent Book Award finalist.

In 2015 he published The Finch Trilogy — Bone Maker, Stone Eater, and Lone Hunter — three novels narrated from the point-of-view of a crime reporter in San Francisco. Second Life, the next novel in the series will be published in May, 2017.

His first novel, Fire Eyes, was optioned for film. His second novel, Healing the Dead, was translated into German as Todliche Ahnungen. The Good Lie, another psychological thriller, was recorded as an audiobook. A fourth novel, Exit from America, made its debut as an e-book in 2013.

Following his birth in Montreal, Bailey's family moved from rural Ontario to New York City to McComb, Mississippi to Cape May, New Jersey. He finally "landed on his feet" on Vancouver Island — where he lives next to the Salish Sea in the city of Victoria.

For twenty-two years Bailey worked at the University of Victoria where he taught creative writing and journalism and coordinated the Professional Writing Cooperative Education Program — which he co-founded. From time to time he also freelanced as a business writer and journalist. In the fall of 2010 he left the university so that he could turn "his preoccupation with writing into a full-blown obsession."
