In recent years, Wes has taken his writing from a closeted hobby to a passionate career. His goal is to use his talent to educate people on diversity, while making readers laugh at the same time. A long-time fascination for rock music, comic books and pop culture is also a theme that runs through his work.

Wes keeps busy promoting two more novels, Baggage and Cherry Blossoms, plus his published memoir, Wes Side Story. Funk's fierce love of writing has encouraged him to become heavily involved in Canada's creative community, and he is an active member of both the Saskatchewan Writers Guild and the Saskatoon Writers Coop. He is always happy to visit book clubs, libraries, bookstores, classrooms, and other reading venues. Wes' extensive knowledge of self-publishing has now also led him to become a presenter of many indie-publishing and/or marketing workshops. He is the host of Shaw TV's weekly literary talk-show, Lit Happens!
Wes enjoyed urban living in his downtown Saskatoon apartment. Wes now makes his home in downtown Edmonton, near the city's beautiful River Valley. Dead Rock Stars is enjoying new life in both audiobook and illustrated versions. His popular short story Rescuing Lancelot was recently published in the acclaimed LGBT literary magazine, Jonathan and his new novel, Frostbite will be published in 2016 (Click Here for a Sneak Peak).
