Born in Massey, Ontario, Reid began writing in 1984 while serving a 21-year prison sentence at the Kent Institution in Agassiz, British Columbia. During his sentence, he submitted a manuscript to Susan Musgrave, then writer-in-residence at the University of Waterloo. This developed into an ongoing correspondence, and Reid and Musgrave married in 1986 at Kent. Reid also published his only novel, Jack Rabbit Parole, that year.
Reid was released on full parole in June 1987. He lived with Musgrave and her daughters in Sidney, British Columbia, teaching creative writing at Camosun College and working as a youth counselor in the Northwest Territories.
Reid also struggled with heroin and cocaine addiction, and in June 1999, he committed another bank robbery. He was sentenced to 18 years in prison and released on day parole on January 28, 2008.
Reid has done time in over twenty different prisons in Canada and the US.
