finn blackwood

Finn Blackwood masquerades as a state worker by day, but his true passion lies in worlds of fiction away from the office. His daily bus commute is his secret writing weapon. Unlike every other writer out there, he has no pets, but he makes up for it with three amazing children whose adventurous lives provide non-stop ideas for stories.

Finn and his incredible wife, Gretchen, enjoy getting lost in the mountains, traveling to faraway places, and binging on their favorite Netflix series until the wee hours of morning. They make their home in Tooele, the real life sister city of Kambarka, Russia, which originally inspired the idea behind The Mark of the Witch.

The Relic Heir Trilogy is his first book series for tweens and teens.
