As a child who grew up near a volcano and surrounded by forests, Washington native Shawn Speakman was…perhaps destined to work in the realm of fantasy. Over the course of his career he has worked closely with fantasy master, Terry Brooks. Shawn currently owns the online bookstore the Signed Page and manages websites for several authors. Speakman is a freelance author for Random House. His novel The Dark Thorn, dealing with a war beneath the streets of Seattle and a quest to drive out the Tuatha de Dannan, has met with much praise from readers and peers alike. The sequel, The Everwinter Wraith is being penned as we speak.
