Eric T Knight
I graduated from the University of Arizona's Creative Writing program in 1989 and I've been writing novels ever since. I spent the first twenty-odd years of my writing career collecting rejections from agents and editors, when they bothered to respond at all. (I wish I was petty enough to contact some of them now. You remember that fantasy series that wasn't good enough for you? Well, I've sold X number of copies, blah, blah, blah. Pretty sure it wouldn't be all that satisfying anyway.)
I got the travel bug pretty bad after college, going as far as I could with my backpack and whatever change I could scrounge up. While backpacking in Australia I had the great good fortune to meet a wonderful Swiss woman who for some reason decided this unemployed, long-haired writer type was worth giving a chance to.
We've been married over 25 years now, with two grown sons who are both awesome people. I write full-time, mostly epic fantasy, and try to work as little as possible.
