Biography

Date of birth: born 1955

Linwood Barclay is a Canadian author, best known for his popular detective novels. He was born in the United States, but his parents moved to Canada by his fourth birthday--he's been there since.

Barclay studied English Literature at Trent University. After graduating, he became a journalist, eventually snagging a position at the Toronto Star. He held a variety of editing jobs for twelve years before becoming the newspaper's humour columnist in 1993. He continued to hold the position through his first few novels, until his first stand-alone thriller, No Time For Goodbye, was published in 2007. It became a runaway bestseller, with critical acclaim and international success, and in 2008 he left journalism to concentrate full-time on his novels. He has since written several other books which have helped to cement Barclay as one of the best modern crime writers.

Barclay lives in Ontario with his wife and two children.
