Ward Larsen is an award-winning author. Born and raised in South Florida. Larsen graduated from the University of Central Florida. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Air Force where he served seven years as a pilot in the 95th and 75th Fighter Squadrons. Ward traveled widely across North America, Europe, and the Middle East, and flew 22 combat missions in Operation Desert Storm.
During his time in the Air Force, Larsen received two Air Medals, was trained in aircraft accident investigation, and attended USAF survival training where he learned, among other things, which snakes can be eaten, and how to resist "interrogation under hostile conditions." Ward Larsen's military qualifications and positions include Expert Qualification in Small Arms Marksmanship, Four-ship Flight Lead, Instructor Pilot, Maintenance Test Pilot, and Flight Commander. Larsen has herded camels using both a jet and an SUV. (He reports that it is far easier with an SUV.)
After leaving the service, Ward returned to Florida. Since 1992, he has flown as a commercial pilot, and is currently a captain with a major airline.
An avid soccer player since his youth, Ward Larsen coaches a competitive soccer team. Ward and his wife Rose met in third grade homeroom. They live in Florida with their three children.
