A graduate of UBC’s Creative Writing program, Owen Laukkanen spent three years travelling to casinos all over the world, from the most luxurious casinos of Monaco to the sketchiest card rooms of Atlantic City, working as a professional poker reporter before turning to fiction. He currently writes critically acclaimed crimethrillers under the name Owen Laukkanen—the latest of which is The Watcher in the Wall—and young-adult novels under Owen Mathews—the latest of which is The Fixes, a wicked, irreverent story of rich kids run amok.
