"It’s a cliche, but write the book that you want to read," says tutor C.S. Pacat. "Whenever I start a novel, I always first try to imagine that I am walking into a bookstore—there is a book I yearn to find there, but never quite do. That’s the book I must write myself."

CS Pacat(link is external) is the author of the best-selling fantasy series ‘Captive Prince’. She has lived in a number of cities, including Tokyo and Perugia. Her first series began as an online serial, which attracted viral attention before being acquired by Penguin USA. The ‘Captive Prince’ trilogy went on to become a USA Today bestseller after being published to commercial success and critical acclaim.

Cat is teaching a workshop on World Building and a Digital Fantasy Novel Intensive in January 2018.
