About the Author

Pat Rothfuss had a great upbringing thanks to his wonderful parents who always encouraged him to do his best. However, despite their support, Pat was a bit of a class clown in high school.

He enjoyed reading and giving relationship advice but had never actually kissed anyone. He was also a bit of a geek, writing terrible stories about elves and role-playing.

In his adult life, Pat spent most of his time at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. He started out studying chemical engineering and then clinical psychology before realizing he had no idea what he wanted to do.

He changed his major to “undecided” and studied whatever interested him, from philosophy to literature to six different martial arts.

During this time, Pat also wrote a book and a satirical advice column called The College Survival Guide. He went to grad school for English literature but hated it.

However, he discovered that he loved to teach and now works as an assistant-sub-lecturer at his old school. He’s also an advisor for various clubs, including the college feminists, the fencing club, and a sorority.

Despite numerous rejections from literary agents, Pat’s lucky break came when he found the best agent and editor imaginable. The first book in his trilogy, The Name of the Wind, was published in 2007 and has since been sold in 26 foreign countries and won several awards.

Pat has been described in various ways, but one person who called him “a rough, earthy iconoclast with a pipeline to the divine in everyone’s subconscious” was likely drunk at the time.
