Rick Mofina grew up east of Toronto, in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. He was a summer student, rookie reporter at The Toronto Star, the same paper that once employed Ernest Hemingway, before embarking on a career in journalism that spanned three decades and several newsrooms, including The Ottawa Citizen, Calgary Herald and Southam News wire service where he reported from the Caribbean, Africa and the Middle East.
His first published novel,If Angels Fall, introduced San Francisco Star crime reporter Tom Reed and San Francisco Homicide Inspector Walt Sydowski. After five books — and movie options on If Angels Fall and Cold Fear, which have since expired — he retired Sydowski and launched a trilogy featuring Jason Wade, a rookie crime reporter based in Seattle.
He's written several stand-alone novels as well and began yet another series featuring Kate Page. Lots more to come on our show. Be sure to tune in.
