N. K. Carlson (1993-currently alive, thank you very much) is a writer living in Texas. He is originally from Libertyville, IL. He has a B.S. in Business Management from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and a Master of Divinity from Logsdon Seminary.

While in college, he began his first novel, which he soon abandoned. Then he began another, which again was quickly abandoned. In seminary, he began a third novel. It also was discarded. In 2017, he began a fourth novel. He finished it.

His final semester of college, he was signed up for a class on the Protestant Reformation. The class was cancelled. He needed the credit hours and the only class that fit his schedule was Introduction to Poetry. Enrolling in this class set him on the path of poetry writing.

He has four books out. The Things That Charm Us, The Smelly Gospel, and Shadow and Sword, which is Book 1 of The Chronicles of Terrasohnen. Water and Blood, Book 2 of The Chronicles of Terrasohnen is out now!
