Tyler Earp


Tyler Earp is an avid reader with a big imagination and even bigger dreams. His biggest dream was to write a book. Well, he's accomplished that. Now his biggest dream is to influence some young reader to love reading as much as he does. Another reason Tyler likes to write is that he gets to talk in the third-person, and not get called insane for it.

Some of his biggest influences come from writers like J.K. Rowling, Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson. He enjoys chess, taking long walks and playing video games. He grew up during the Harry Potter boom and dares you to challenge him on anything Potter!

Fun facts:
He has read the Webster's Dictionary for the fun of it.
He has a small cat he calls Mouse JR.
His favorite weird food combination is chocolate milk and pretzels.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Oh boy, I can remember that like it was yesterday. It was after one of my English teachers told me I couldn't write to save my life. Thus began my path to spiteful vengeance. Yeah, I'm not lying. I began writing to prove someone wrong. Now here I am, three books in(two of which will never see the light of day), several short stories(also sharing space with those two novels in a cabinet, out of sight and mind), and more poems than I even care to admit writing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well, I got this idea to do a kinda Grimm spin-off, but I quickly realized that that just wasn't working. It just wasn't what the story was calling for. I ended up going back to the drawing board, and it was around that time that I started reading into Celtic mythology. I saw a whole minefield of creatures and ideas that hadn't ever really been tapped into, and they just meshed so well with the ideas I had for the book.
