Ever heard the saying “Behind every sports writer is a frustrated athlete?” Well that sentiment unquestionably rings true with this proud native of Nanaimo, British Columbia.
Farhan Devji played organized ice hockey with both the Nanaimo Minor Hockey Association and the Port Moody Amateur Hockey Association up until grade twelve, and also played basketball up until the tenth grade, before he realized that he would be better suited to write about sports rather than play them.
Farhan’s two biggest passions are sports and writing, which works out perfectly as he likes to combine the two together. He is an avid Vancouver Canucks supporter and has an incurable infatuation with the game of hockey.
Farhan enjoys writing Young Adult novels which focus primarily, but not exclusively, on sports. He would one day like to become a recognized and respected author and/or journalist in his community.
The Hockey Farmer is Farhan's first published novel; however, his experience as a sports journalist is widespread.
