Patrick Larkin is an American novelist specializing in historical, military, and espionage thrillers. His collaborations with Larry Bond, including Red Phoenix, Vortex,[1] Cauldron, The Enemy Within, and Day of Wrath, have won critical acclaim for their suspense, realism, and unblinking appreciation of geopolitical and modern military realities.

He is also credited with writing the original background information for the Battledroids boardgame. This outlined the setting from which the BattleTech universe would evolve.
