C. C. Finlay was born in 1964 in New York City but soon thereafter moved to rural Ohio. His childhood was divided equally between playing in the woods and reading his way through the fiction shelves of his small town's Carnegie library.
Like Jay Gatsby, he studied abroad briefly at the University of Oxford, and it was there that he fell in love with history. He earned a degree in literature at Capital University and did graduate work in history at the Ohio State University, where he was a research assistant on two award-winning books about the Constitution. He started writing fiction after the birth of his son because he wanted to set an example about chasing one's dreams.
He lives in Columbus with his novelist wife (and sometimes co-author) Rae Carson and two sons.
