Brandon Sanderson is a great guy who absolutely loves writing about himself in the third person. He grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska, and earned several sets of important letters after his name at Brigham Young University. His breakout novel, ELANTRIS, was published by Tor in 2005, and has received universal acclaim. Currently in its third hardback printing, ELANTRIS is forthcoming in ten different languages, and received excellent reviews in Publisher's Weekly (starred review), Locus, Booklist, and the Library Journal (starred review).
