Patrick Rothfuss

Patrick  Rothfuss

Patrick Rothfuss grew up in Wisconsin, where the long winters and lack of cable television inspired him to read and write. As a child, his mother read to him and his father taught him how to construct things. Look there if you're looking for the origins of his storytelling. He still lives in central Wisconsin, doesn't have cable, teaches at the college he loved as a student, and is forced to stay indoors and write through the long winters.
