Guest Host:
Matt Wolf, author of the Ronin Saga

Matt Wolf was born on March 14, 1986 in Southern California. He traveled as a child and studied Old English and Japanese. He graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in Literature with specialization in Medieval Literature and Japanese. With the combination of too much solitude, breathtaking landscapes, and a heap of books, Matt began The Ronin Saga (The Knife’s Edge, Bastion of Sun, Citadel of Fire) at the age of eighteen.

Matt now writes out of his home in California where, while crafting worlds of magic, he often forgets to eat. If he’s not writing, Matthew tours comic conventions, schools, libraries, and bookstores to spread the word of the Ronin.
