Larry McCloskey lives in Ottawa with his wife and three daughters. Nikki, an eccentric beagle, also graces the family home. Larry has exorcised his Irish angst with 20 years of competitive road racing. When not running or writing, he is employed as associate director of Carleton University's Student Life Services. Larry is launching Tom Thomson's Last Paddle: A Dani and Caitlin Mystery, which continues the adventure that began in his first book, Murder at the Summerhouse.
