Lorne Elliot was the host for ten years of CBC Radio’s Madly Off in All Directions and is a musician, comedian, playwright and novelist. He has written and performed in numerous plays and shows in various media. His latest musical play, Jamie Rowsell Lives, won the 2012 Playwrights Guild of Canada Award for Best Musical.

His latest novel, The Goat in the Tree, is part fictional travelogue, part love story, and part series of misadventures.
