Philip Craig Robotham grew up in a house full of books. He has held numerous jobs as a teacher, computer programmer, graphic and web designer, e-learning consultant and, most recently, writer. He currently lives in Wodonga Australia with his wife and two sons. When he was younger and fitter he enjoyed martial arts but in recent years his hobbies have tended towards more sedate fare (board games, books, and role playing games). He is extremely grateful for the encouragement he receives from his biggest fans – his wife and two boys – all of whom read and enjoy his writing and in general make his life worth living.
