Harper Paris loves to travel. His favorite cities in the world are Paris (like his name!) and New York City. He has collected many souvenirs on his travels, including a good-luck coin from Japan and a reindeer-horn pendant from Sweden. He also loves mysteries. When he was a kid, he read Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books after bedtime with a flashlight. He now lives with his family (including two cats and a bunny, who are not good travelers) in Ithaca, New York.
