Growing up, Patrick Rothfuss didn't apply himself and failed to live up to his full potential. Despite this, Pat's parents continued to love him. They also were encouraging, but in a very general way, as he seemed to have no actual talents to speak of.
While wandering through college, Pat learned he had a knack for writing. In 2000 he finished the first draft of the project he had been working on for seven years, a mammoth story centering around the life of a man named Kvothe.
In 2007, after another seven years of revision and rejection Pat finally published his first book: The Name of the Wind. People kinda liked it. It became an international bestseller and won all sorts of awards.
In 2010 Pat published a dark faerie tale in picture-book form called The Adventures of The Princess and Mr. Whiffle: The Thing Beneath the Bed. In March 2011 he published the second book in his trilogy The Wise Man's Fear. People kinda liked it too, and it hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list.
