Dennis and Holly Larsen grew up in Brigham City, Utah, a small town set into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Dennis attended Utah State University before graduating from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon with a Doctorate of Optometry degree in May of 1987. He has worked as an Optometrist in an Edmonton, Alberta group practice since that time.
They were married in 1981 and have four children, three girls and a boy. In recent years their lives have been blessed with the addition of in-laws and grandchildren. Holly works as a bookkeeper for their business. "The Marvelous Mind of Marvin Marsh" is her first book, designed for young children. It contains repetitive sing-song, fun dialog and 18 full color pages of wonderful characters.
Thrillers, with a gritty edge, appeal to Dr. Larsen more than other genres but he looks forward to exploring different avenues. He has currently completed four novels: With Cruel Intent (Southern Crime), The Raven Falconer Chronicles (Viral Pandemic), The Living Hunger - Book #1 (Post-Apocalyptic), and its sequel, The Lasting Hunger (final book of the series). He is currently doing research on a Civil War romance/adventure novel, with some modern day twists.
