Liam Oliver Kai Selby was born in December of 1993 in Pietersburg, South Africa. From a young age, he had a fascination with books and creating worlds of his own and aspired to bring those worlds to life in the minds of others. He obtained an Honours Degree in Zoology at the University of Pretoria and has since been working as a freelance editor and copy-editor. Liam has always loved literature – especially fantasy works such as those of Tolkien, Robert Jordan and Trudi Canavan – as well as video games, through which his fascination of the creation of fantasy worlds steadily grew. His love for fantasy and writing has inspired him to work on fantasy novels of his own, some of which he aims to have published.
