Before finally realising that the career’s advisor lied to him about making a living as an author, G. D. Penman worked as an editor, tabletop game designer, and literally every awful demeaning job that you can think of in-between.
He is a veteran of the battlefields of Azeroth, Lordran, Tamriel and Thedas, but he left his heart in Baldur’s Gate.
Nowadays he is fulfilling his destiny as a fat, bearded man by writing fantasy novels and smoking a pipe. He lives in Dundee, Scotland with his wife, children, dog and cats. Just… so many cats.
