Patrick James Rothfuss, born in Wisconsin in 1973, is a celebrated American writer known for his contributions to the world of epic fantasy. Growing up in an environment where the long winters and the absence of cable television left him with little choice but to embrace the joys of reading and writing.
In a twist as intriguing as one of his plots, Patrick embarked on a truly eclectic academic journey. Casting aside his initial pursuit of chemical engineering, he wandered through the academic landscape, making pit stops in fields like clinical psychology, philosophy, medieval history, theater, and sociology. It took a mere nine years for university policy to insist that he finally wrap up his undergraduate journey with a degree in English.
