Host Sherrilynne Starkie sits down with Terry Fallis, Canadian author and founder of Thornley Fallis Communications to talk about how he manages two successful, yet demanding, careers. 

Terry, a two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, is the award-winning author of six national bestsellers, including his most recent, One Brother Shy.  Along with Joseph Thornley, he founded Thornley Fallis in 1995.  Since 2006, Terry has juggled his life as a writer and as a communications agency leader (he also teaches, sits on a number of boards and enjoys living in Toronto with his wife and two sons). 

Sounds busy right?  He handles it all with grace and aplomb.  And as he continues to write great novels, he continues to win industry awards. Terry has recently been awarded an IABC Canada Silver Leaf, a Toronto Ovation Award and an Ottawa Bronze Quill.

In this edition of the IABC Ottawa’s The Voice, Terry explains how he manages priorities and finds ways to blend his two paths, to the benefit of both.
