Linwood Barclay is an internationally bestselling author of 13 novels for adults, including Trust Your Eyes and No Time for Goodbye.

Barclay was born in the United States but moved to Canada just before turning four years old when his father, a commercial artist, accepted a position with an advertising agency north of the border. His father died when he was 16, and Barclay spent his formative years helping run a cottage resort and trailer park that his family owned.

Barclay graduated with an English literature degree from Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, and got his first newspaper job at the Peterborough Examiner, a small Ontario daily. In 1981, he joined the Toronto Star, Canada's largest circulation newspaper. He became one of the paper's most popular columnists before retiring from the position in 2008 to work exclusively on books.

He has now written his first book for children, called Chase.
