R.R. Virdi is a two-time Dragon Award finalist and a Nebula Award finalist. He is the author of two urban fantasy series—The Grave Report and The Books of Winter. He is also the author of the LitRPG/portal-fantasy series Monster Slayer Online, and a space western/sci-fi series, Shepherd of Light. He has worked in the automotive industry as a mechanic, in retail, and in the custom gaming computer world. He’s an avid car nut with a special love for American classics.

The hardest challenge for him up to this point has been fooling most of society into believing he’s a completely sane member of the general public.
