BP Gallucci was born and raised in the suburbs of Toronto.
He began writing at an early age – a (very) short story written while in Kindergarten won a school-wide creative writing contest. He was chosen to represent his school at a creative writing retreat with other students from all over the region. That story, The Little Big Feet, was reproduced in that year’s anthology. He has been writing and telling stories in one form or another non-stop since.
His influences include Hunter S. Thompson, William Gibson, William S. Burroughs, Ken Kesey, Stephen King, Jack Kerouac, Neal Gaiman, David Foster Wallace, Haruki Murakami, and Alan Moore.
His words on Lexus Sam:
I think of it as a film noir on the printed page; a mysterious story with a soul at it’s core… a story about what makes us, defines us; a story that asks whether what we are and will become is dictated by genetics, fate, God, whether who we are can be influenced or controlled by the context of our lives, by others around us, or whether ultimately people are self-fulfilling prophecies — deciding who and what they will become through their choices and actions.
He currently lives in a drafty apartment in Midtown Toronto with his wife Jillian Rose and their extra fluffy cat, Errol.
