Cathi Bond is a writer, broadcaster and new media pioneer who ardently believes that the future of fiction lies on the digital frontier. She has written for television, print, is an established CBC radio personality, created one the first arts blogs in Canada and co-founded “thesniffer” one of the earliest podcasts about technology and trends.
Cathi was the host of the podcast “Prosecast” which focused on Canadian authors and themes and was sponsored by Harper Collins Canada. On CBC Radio she was a frequent film and cultural critic on Definitely Not the Opera and is currently a regular contributor to Spark, discussing significant shifts in new technology.
Several years ago Cathi became interested in telling the story of downtown Toronto in the 1970s. As a very young woman, the author knew the mean streets all too well, and she decided to create a fictional account of Toronto during this time. Toronto the Good was really a dangerous city full of street drugs, body rub parlours and menacing bikers. It was also the epicenter of the early heady days of Canada’s gay revolution.
Cathi’s upcoming novel Night Town is the result of this journey. The novel has been optioned by Back Alley Pictures for a feature film release.
Night Town is now available from Iguana Books! Listen to Nora Young’s interview of Cathi and her inspiration to write Night Town.
