Robert Treskillard is a Celtic enthusiast who holds a B.A. in Biblical & Theological Studies from Bethel University, Minnesota. He has been crafting stories from his early youth, is a software developer, graphic artist, and sometime bladesmith. He and his wife have three adult children and live in the country outside St. Louis, Missouri.
It all began when Robert's son wanted to learn blacksmithing and sword-making. The two set out to learn the crafts and in the process were told by a relative that they were descended from a Cornish blacksmith.
This lit the fire of Robert's imagination, and so welding his Celtic research to his love of the legends of King Arthur, a trilogy was forged—Merlin's Blade, Merlin's Shadow, and Merlin's Nightmare—the books of The Merlin Spiral, published by Blink Young Adult Books.
