This is a short novel set in Modeg. It tells the origin story of one of the legendary figures in the world: Laniel young-again. She is a woman who decides to go out and see the world after marrying and raising her kids. The author is playing against the idea that any female heroine is either the plucky tomboy type or inspired by a need to protect her children.
Patrick Rothfuss (US, born 1973) currently lives in central Wisconsin where he teaches at the local university. In his free time Patrick writes a satirical humor column, practices civil disobedience, and dabbles in alchemy. He loves words, laughs often, and refuses to dance.
The working title of the third book of The Kingkiller Chronicle is The Doors of Stone.
