Mark this date in your calendar because you won't want to miss Rick Mofina, best-selling Canadian author, who is coming to Beaverbrook library to talk to us about his writing life and his latest novel Missing Daughter.
A Canadian author of crime fiction and thriller novels, Rick grew up in Belleville, Ontario, and began writing short stories in school, selling his first short story at the age of fifteen. A member of the Mystery Writers of America, the International Thriller Writers, the International Crime Writers Association, the Crime Writers' Association and Crime Writers of Canada, Rick continues to be a featured panelist at mystery conferences across the United States and Canada.
His career in journalism spanned three decades and several newsrooms, including The Ottawa Citizen, The Calgary Herald, and newswire services Southam News and CanWest. 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. He’s also written for the UK’s Sunday Telegraph.
Rick's reporting has put him face-to-face with murderers on death row in Montana and Texas. He covered a horrific serial killing case in California, an armored car heist in Las Vegas, the murders of police officers in Alberta. He has flown over Los Angeles with the LAPD, and gone on patrol with the RCMP near the Arctic. He has reported from the Caribbean, Africa and the Middle East.
