WVaughnWilliam Vaughn has been a storyteller from a very early age—perhaps from the time he had to explain why he was presenting his mom with a bunch of her prized tulips. More recently, his furtive imagination spawned The Seldith Chronicles, a series of young adult books that follow the lives, exploits and challenges of a clan of forest elves no taller than a mushroom who, live in the local forests. In the fall of 2014, William published The Timkers, a new adult novel that follows Sam, a troubled young man running from the police only to find himself transported to 1930 where he meets the love of his life—and has to leave her behind.

Before his fantasy writing career began, William travelled the world as an Army brat and then as a technical speaker, mentor and award-winning technical author known the world-over. He has worked in the technical arena for over forty years, principally focusing on SQL Server, Reporting Services and Visual Basic. He’s written over a dozen books and contributed to a like number on these subjects. He settled in Redmond, Washington at the edge of a forest teeming with story ideas and within artillery-range of Microsoft to keep them honest.
