Patrick Carr starts his day at an absurdly early hour, swilling coffee in an over-sized mug and eating dark chocolate as he crafts character-driven fantasy stories in the dark. He was born in what used to be West Germany at the height of the cold war to an Air Force fighter pilot and a very patient woman. He turned his predilection for daydreaming into a writing habit, which explains why he will often stop mid-sentence to stare, observing scenes no one else can see. His first novel, A Cast of Stones, won the Clive Staples Award, the ACFW Carol Award and was a finalist for the Christy Award in two different categories. Since then his works have won the Realm Makers award for epic fantasy and the Inspy Award.
