Brandon Mull

Author

Brandon Mull is a New York Times Best-Selling Author of nearly 30 books, including Fablehaven and Beyonders. Brandon graduated from Brigham Young University in 2000, and immediately started working on his first full-length novel. Interestingly though, it was not the novel that got him his first publishing deal. That honor would go to Fablehaven. Now, he spends many hours a day writing, but he enjoys every minute of it, because he is doing what he loves.
