G. D. Penman is the author of the Witch of Empire trilogy, Dungeons of Strata, and many other books. Before finally realising that the career’s advisor lied to him about making a living as an author, he worked as a tabletop game designer, as the VIP Manager of a national telecoms company and literally every awful demeaning job that you can think of in-between. He is a veteran of the battlefields of Azeroth, The Northern Realms, Lordran, Tamriel and Thedas, but he left his heart in Baldur’s Gate. Nowadays he is fulfilling his destiny as a fat, bearded man by writing fantasy novels and smoking a pipe. He lives in Dundee, Scotland with his wife, children, dog and cats. Just… so many cats.
