Short summary of the author: I encountered the books of Mark Frost, specifically The Paladin Prophecy books, when I was looking for something to read along the line of Hunger Games -- not exactly dystopia but it is in a way? Anyway, The Paladin Prophecy came up on a search and I checked it out from the library. Wow. I don't know anything about Mark Frost, himself, except through this one series of books. Goodreads, oddly enough, doesn't have a write-up on him?
On the back of The Paladin Prophecy (which I ended up buying) is
Mark Frost studied directing and playwriting at Carnegie Mellon University. He partnered with David Lynch to create and executive-produce the groundbreaking television series Twin Peaks. Frost cowrote the screenplays for the films Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. He is also the New York Times bestselling author of eight previous books, including The List of Seven, The Second Objective, The Greatest Game Ever Played and The Match.
