Patrick Rothfuss

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.
