After a spectacularly unsuccessful career as a lawyer, K. J. Parker started writing for a living in 1995. When not gazing helplessly at a blank screen, KJ rears pedigree Oxford Sandy & Black pigs, chops down trees and makes things out of wood, metal and cloth. He won the World Fantasy Award for best novella two years running, and currently averages 92.8 in the SSBSA summer league. He also writes under the name Tom Holt.
