Christopher Nuttall has been planning sci-fi books since he learnt to read. Born and raised in Edinburgh, Chris created an alternate history website and eventually graduated to writing full-sized novels. Studying history independently allowed him to develop worlds that hung together and provided a base for storytelling. After graduating from university, Chris started writing full-time. As an indie author he has self-published many novels, but this is his ninth fantasy to be published by Elsewhen Press, and the fourth in the popular Royal Sorceress series. The first was The Royal Sorceress, followed by The Great Game and Necropolis. The Sons of Liberty continues Gwen's story. Chris is currently living in Edinburgh with his wife, muse, and critic Aisha and their son.
