Greg Rhyno was born in Toronto, Ontario, but grew up in Thunder Bay. His fiction has appeared in PRISM international and he is a recipient of the J. Alex Munro Prize for Poetry. In addition, Rhyno has toured and recorded with such rock n’ roll outfits as The Parkas, Phasers On Stun, and Wild Hearses. A few years back, Umbrella Music called his songwriting “some of the smartest 20-something observations since Ron Hawkins fronted Lowest of the Low.” His music has been licensed to television and film, including shows like Scrubs, Greek, and Dawson’s Creek. Currently, he works as a high school teacher and lives with his family in Guelph, Ontario.
