Jack Whyte

Writer

When Jack Whyte figured out how the young Arthur pulled the sword out of the stone, he never imagined the revelation would lead to a long and successful career as a novelist. Now, twenty-five years after emerging from his basement with three completed manuscripts and no idea he’d ever get them published, he’s the author of a much-loved, nine-book cycle of novels on the Arthurian legend, a highly successful, internationally-published trilogy on the history of the Knights Templar, and his most recent trilogy, set in his native Scotland in the 14th Century, and dealing with Scotland’s (and his own) greatest heroes:The Forest Laird, The Renegade, and The Guardian. He is currently at work on a prequel to his first novel, The Skystone.
