Biography

Patrick James Rothfuss (born June 6, 1973) is an American fantasy writer and college lecturer. He is the author of the projected three-volume series The Kingkiller Chronicle.

Patrick Rothfuss was born in Madison, Wisconsin, and received his B.S. in English from the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point in 1999 after spending nine years as an undergraduate exploring various majors such as Chemical Engineering, Clinical Psychology, and others. He contributed to The Pointer, the campus paper and produced a widely circulated parodic warning about the Goodtimes Virus.

He graduated in 1999, received an MA at Washington State University, and returned to teach at Stevens Point. In 2002, he won the Writers of the Future 2002 Second Quarter competition with “The Road to Levinshir”, an excerpt from his then-unpublished novel The Wise Man’s Fear. Rothfuss subsequently sold the novel to DAW Books.

In August 2012, Rothfuss began a monthly podcast called The Story Board on fantasy, featuring authors such as Terry Brooks and Brandon Sanderson. The Story Board ran for 8 episodes.

Mr. Rothfuss has one son whom he calls “Oot” and lives in a house he bought with his girlfriend, Sarah.
