Severe dyslexia kept Blake Charlton from reading fluently until he was twelve. Because of this, everyone - including Blake - believed that he would never attend college. Ten years later he graduated summa cum laude from Yale University. Blake is currently studying at Stanford Medical School. Spellwright is his first novel.
Praise for Blake Charlton: `Absolutely not to be missed' Kirkus Reviews 'Blake Charlton has created one of the few truly original magical systems we've seen in fantasy fiction ... I'm fascinated to see what happens next and will be following every word with the absorption of an apprentice spellwright. You will be, too' Tad Williams 'Nicodemus Weal is a protagonist that all of us can identify with. Spellwright features a unique system of magic and characters that are genuine inhabitants of that world. Spellwright is a letter-perfect story: an absorbing read and recommended.' Robin Hobb `An enthralling tale' Terry Brooks `Vivid, intelligent, and painful in an authentically laudable way.' - Kirkus Reviews
