Robert Beatty is the author of the #1 New York Times best-selling companion to this book, Willa of the Wood, as well as the best-selling Serafina series, four spooky mystery-thrillers about a brave and unusual girl who lives secretly in the basement of the grand Biltmore Estate.
Robert Beatty lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina with his wife and three daughters, who help create and refine his stories. He loves to explore Biltmore Estate, the Great Smokey Mountains, and the darkened forest trails where his novels take place. He writes full-time now, but in his past lives, Robert was one of the early pioneers of cloud computing, the founder/CEO of Plex Systems, the co-founder of Beatty Robotics, and the chairman/CTO of Narrative Magazine. In 2007, he was named an Entrepreneur of the Year.
