Trevor C. Smith is an artist in as many facets as he can manage. He is a commissioned painter and a tattoo artist. He is a graduate of the University of Hard Knocks with honors. Trevor lives in Toronto with his family. His first novel, Year of the Rooster dismantles the illusions of security, predictability and anonymity that pacify humankind. It exposes the common incarcerating binds of society: greed, the cubicle effect, and our contentious relationship with money.
