Rick Mofina grew up east of Toronto, in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. He began writing fiction in grade school. At age 15, he sold his first short story to a U.S. magazine. In his teens he hitchhiked to California and wrote a novel about the experience. He has held jobs ranging from working at a horseracing track to delivering cars to Florida, before he attended Carleton University where he studied Journalism, English Literature, and American Detective Fiction.

He became a reporter at The Toronto Star before embarking on a career in journalism that spanned three decades and several newsrooms. His freelance crime stories have appeared around the world in such publications as The New York Times, Reader's Digest, Marie Claire, The South China Morning Post magazine and The Moscow Times.

His reporting has put him face-to-face with murderers on death row in Montana and Texas. He has covered a horrific serial killing case in California, an armored car heist in Las Vegas, the murders of police officers in Alberta, flown over Los Angeles with the LAPD, and gone on patrol with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police near the Arctic. He has reported from the Caribbean, Africa and the Middle East.

As a member of the Mystery Writers of America, the Private Eye Writers of America, the International Thriller Writers, the International Crime Writers Association and Crime Writers of Canada, Rick, continues to be a featured panelist at mystery conferences across the United States and Canada. He enjoys receiving reader feedback -- which has come from all around the world, including readers in Australia, Hong Kong, Norway, Iceland, South Africa, Bermuda, the United States and Canada. Rick updates diehard fans who want the latest news on his work by subscribing to his informal newsletter.

Rick is currently based in Ottawa, where he lives with his wife and their two children and works as a communications advisor for the federal government.
