  • Guest Bio

    Patrick Rothfuss was born in Madison, Wisconsin to awesome parents. After nine years at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, he accidentally had enough credits to graduate with an English degree. Patrick then went to grad school. He’d rather not talk about it.

    In March 2007, The Name of the Wind was published and met with surprising success. In the years since, it has been translated into 30 languages, won all manner of awards, and become a bestseller in several countries.

    After a great deal of work and a few raised eyebrows from his patient editor, Wise Man’s Fear came out in March 2011, hitting #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. A companion novella, The Slow Regard of Silent Things, followed in 2014 and debuted at #2.

    When not working on his writing, Pat plays with his children, makes mead, and runs Worldbuilders, a geek-centered charity which raises money for established charities like Heifer International, First Book, and Mercy Corps.
