Arthur Ténor is a kid at heart. He loves fairy tales, epic fantasy, historical fiction . . . and of course, funny stories. That’s why whenever someone asks him what his job is, he replies, “explorer of the imagination.” While he thinks of himself as an adventure and fantasy novelist, he’s also a world citizen and a human being deeply affected by real-life events—which has lead him to also write realistic novels, sometimes taking on serious themes such as harassment, digital security, or politics. Besides writing, he loves meeting and talking to new people, whether at conventions, schools, or just about anywhere else.
