Edward L. Cote is a nontraditional student at the University of Kansas. He learned to read before kindergarten and read Dune at age twelve. He’s been trying to write almost as long. While he has a prior publication, this is his first book.
In addition to reading and writing, his interests include a wide variety of music, games, cooking, dining out, geek culture, and politics.
He has lived in Kansas all his life, except one year in Chicago. He has never married or had children or figured out why these things are written in third person.
Violet Skies is the first book in a YA series of the same name. Each book is a novella, short and easy to read. This is a fresh twist on classic fantasy, but it keeps its essential nature intact. The writing focuses on compelling characters first and appeals to fans and critics of the genre alike. Influences ranging from anime to Zelazny combine in a way familiar yet unique.
