The Bios

Biography 1

C. Thomas Lafollette is a writer of Urban Fantasy and Historical Fantasy and is the author of the forthcoming Luke Irontree novels. He earned a degree in Ancient History with a specialization in Classics. He’s read poetry on stage with Yevgeny Yevtushenko* and dined with the Belgian Prime Minister**. C. Thomas has lived in Portland, Oregon for over twenty years. He lives with his wife, fellow author Amy Cissell, his stepdaughter, and his three jerkface cats. He and Amy also run their own freelance editing business – Cissell Ink.

*Yevtushenko was friends with a professor at C. Thomas’s college. He was studying Russian at the time and Yevtushenko decided he wanted the Russian students to read with him on stage at his performance.

**This was purely coincidental. C. Thomas’s host took him to dinner at a restaurant in Mons, which was Elio De Rupo’s favorite spot. He was also the mayor of Mons at the time. He’d had a pie thrown at him earlier that day and was having dinner with some friends. C. Thomas is still not sure what kind of pie it was though.
