About the Author
Andrew J. Hale-Byrne is the author of Grenville. In 2007, he exposed the cult boarding school, known as
Grenville Christian College, in the Canadian press. Subsequently, there has been an Anglican Church enquiry, Ontario Provincial
Police investigation and an ongoing class-action lawsuit.
Indeed, Andrew attended Grenville in the 1990s and saw first-hand the horrific abuse that was inflicted on minors. Currently, he
serves as a representative plaintiff and press officer for the Grenville Christian College Class
Action. His book is the culmination of his research going back nine and half years.
Andrew is British. He and his family reside and work in the United Kingdom, but he travels regularly to Canada to brief
the media on matters pertaining to the cult, which damaged numerous lives. Andrew has a long history of social justice and
human rights activism, and his exposure of abuse at Grenville is in keeping with that tradition.
Andrew is a practising Anglican and has divergent interests from public policy, economics, equestrianism, alpinism,
literature and art.
