Larry LaVoie was born in a small town in Oregon in 1942. He lettered in football and track in high school. In the summers, as a teenager, he worked in the fields around Dayton, Oregon. Larry graduated from McMinnville High school in 1960 and joined the Oregon National Guard in the fall of 1960. He completed basic training in Fort Ord, California. He spent much of his career as an engineer in the aerospace industry. He has traveled extensively to several European countries. He has lived in several small towns in Oregon and along the Oregon Coast, which is reflected in some of his novels. He now lives in the high desert country of Eastern Oregon. He likes golf and bowling and has participated in several bowling tournaments over the past several years. His writing mainly has a flavor of his small town roots, although a few of his novels take place in larger cities such as Los Angeles, or Portland, or foreign countries. His writings reflect much of his own experience as an engineer and as a person who loves sports and politics. His writings include mystery, thrillers and action adventure set in interesting places. While many of his novels are written for a mainstream adult audience he has also written for young adult and Christian readers.
"I write mainly to entertain," Larry says. "When you read one of my books I want you to enjoy a good story through the eyes of the characters in the novel."
Larry has completed twelve novels and is working on a thirteenth which should be completed this year.
