John Gray is a Canadian writer-composer and performer for stage, TV, film and radio, and more recently a writer of crime fiction. He is probably best known for his landmark of Canadian musical theatre, Billy Bishop goes to War, which he wrote and composed with Eric Peterson in the late 1970s. In later life, John turned to the novel as his preferred mode of expression and in 2017 penned The White Angel, a highly acclaimed crime novel based on the still-unsolved murder of Janet Smith in 1924 Vancouver. John is a recipient of a Golden Globe and the Governor General’s Medal.
