In early 2013, Matt Bishop told a bedtime story to his son about a giant magical tree named Yggdrasil, the animals living upon and beneath it, and all the places one could reach by exploring that tree. Little did Matt know that the seed he planted in his son’s imagination would instead blossom in his own.
Over the last four years, that simple seed became the epic fantasy series, And The Heavens Burn. It is based on Matt’s interpretation and adaptation of Norse mythology, as told in the Poetic Edda and Prose Edda. That bedtime story and a love for Nordic legends are the inspirations that drove Matt to put pen to paper and write about the likes of Odin, Frigg, Loki and Vidar.
Matt Bishop lives in Midgard, just outside Chicago with his family. Occasionally, Ratatosk stops by for a quick chat before continuing his daily treks up and down Yggdrasil.
