Arthur Swan, author of Encanto, was raised in North Carolina and now resides in Los Angeles. He has contributed to films ranging from ‘A Beautiful Mind’ to ‘How to Train Your Dragon’.
On weekdays, he rises before the sun and starts writing, followed by a swim at one of his favorite outdoor pools in LA, followed by a big breakfast, more writing, and then his day job.
He volunteers for Young Storytellers, enjoys fishing and fireworks with his favorite niece and nephew, and on weekends he can be found hiking high climbs in early fog before the sun burns through as mist vanishes to blue sky, or otherwise, he’s probably trying to write. His first novel, Before the Sun Hits, won the Reader Views Reader’s Choice Award.
