In his novels, there are no bug-eyed monsters, or galactic space battles, instead he paints a richly vivid and realistic world where the "hero" uses hard work and his own innate talents to improve his station and the lives of those of his community.

Robin Lythgoe
Lythgoe, Robin

"I was born in Maryland, but spent several years in Oregon and did a short stint in upstate New York before moving to Utah. I married an artist, and together we have four wonderful children. Reading and writing have always been a part of my life, and I am particularly drawn to fantasy. Before I managed the art of the pen I dictated my first fiction — a tale about a rabbit — to a scribe (my sister). My mother often headed up expeditions to the library, from which the entire party invariably returned laden with a stack of books guaranteed to make the arms longer. I read everything voraciously, and when I finished my stack, I'd start on my mother's'... and then my sisters'. Today I write tales about wizards and magic, fantastical places and extraordinary journeys."
