Mitchell Hogan received The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy as an eleven-year-old, and a love of fantasy novels was born. He spent the next ten years reading, rolling dice, and playing computer games, with some school and university thrown in. For another ten years he put off his dream of writing; then he quit his job and wrote A Crucible of Souls, winner of the 2013 Aurealis Award for Best Fantasy Novel.
