Sebastien de Castell

Sebastien de Castell is the author of the acclaimed swashbuckling fantasy series, The Greatcoats. His debut novel, Traitor's Blade, was shortlisted for both the 2014 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Fantasy, the Gemmell Morningstar Award for Best Debut, the Prix Imaginales for Best Foreign Work, and the John W. Campbell for Best New Writer.  Sebastien had just finished a degree in Archaeology when he started work on his first dig. Four hours later he realized how much he actually hated archaeology and left to pursue a very focused career as a musician, ombudsman, interaction designer, fight choreographer, teacher, project manager, actor, and product strategist. 

He lives in Vancouver, Canada with his lovely wife and two belligerent cats.
