Before settling down to write fantasy novels, Josiah Bancroft was a poet, college instructor and aspiring comic book artist. When he is not writing, he enjoys recording the Crit Faced podcast with his authorial friends, drawing the world of the Tower and cooking dinner without a recipe. He lives in Philadelphia with his wife, Sharon, their daughter, Maddie and their two rabbits, Mabel and Chaplin.
