F.B. André was born in San Fernando, Trinidad, in 1955. He emigrated to Hamilton, Ontario in 1971. He is a graduate of McMaster. He has worked at diverse jobs -- bartender, gold miner, factory worker, café owner and program administrator. These many experiences have enriched his writing. The stories in his latest book What Belongs explore what it means to belong. When does a place become home? When can you stake your claim? When does it become automatic that we are from here? His stories have been published in several magazines and anthologies. His first collection, The Man Who Beat The Man, was published by NeWest Press. He lives in Vancouver.
