John Claude Bemis grew up in the swampiest corner of North Carolina, where as a kid he devoured fantasy and science fiction books, played violin in youth orchestras, played guitar in really awful (but impressively loud) rock bands, and had his head filled with his grandfather’s curious tales of train-hopping and America’s lost past.

In his Clockwork Dark trilogy, which includes The Nine Pound Hammer, The Wolf Tree, and The White City, he spun American folklore, history, and myth into epic fantasy.  His latest novel The Prince Who Fell from the Sky has been called a “post-apocalyptic Jungle Book.”  John lives with his wife and daughter in Hillsborough, NC.
