More About the Author
Born in the mythical antipodean utopia of New Zealand, wisely regarded by scholars as the fountainhead of cultural excellence and the only place on Earth capable of filling in for Middle Earth, Narnia, and Ancient Greece, Cam Banks was lured away by the siren call of a life with meaning and purpose. Cam now lives a quiet, pastoral existence in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area with his beautiful wife, their two boys, and more books, comics, and music than he can comfortably store. He works for Atlas Games as a brand manager and in-house coffee drinker. In his free time, Cam likes to read and write fantasy fiction, watch movies and television with his wife, play video games with his oldest son, and allow his youngest son to chip away at his sanity.
Cam's work has appeared in almost every one of over a dozen DRAGONLANCE game sourcebooks published by Sovereign Press and Margaret Weis Productions, and three times in Dragon Magazine. As lead designer for Margaret Weis Productions he wrote, designed, and oversaw production on roleplaying games based on Leverage, Smallville, and Marvel Comics, as well as the core system design on the upcoming Firefly RPG. His work on the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Basic Game picked up three ENnie Awards in 2012 including Best Rules, as well as an Origins Award in 2013. Cam's first short story, "Chain of Fools," appears in the anthology Dragons of Time; The Sellsword, published in April 2008, is his first published novel.
