About the Author

John Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia. Hoping to be a writer, and after a successful career in advertising and television, he began writing a series of short stories for his son in order to encourage him to read. Those stories would eventually become The Ruins of Gorlan, the first book of the Ranger’s Apprentice epic. Together with his companion series, Brotherband Chronicles, John Flanagan’s novels have sold millions of copies and made readers of kids all over the world. Mr. Flanagan lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife. In addition to their son, they have two grown daughters and four grandsons.
