E.M. Zolotor was born in 1995 and grew up in the Midwest. He was raised with a family library and was surrounded by books his entire life. He first carried around handwritten stories written on stacks of paper as a child and never stopped writing and drawing. Now, Ethan is an author, illustrator, and engineer. He went on to engineer formula-e cars, laser systems, hybrid- electric boats, and windmills—all the while working on his stories during late nights.
Inspired by fantasy literature, anime and manga, and western comics and cinema, E.M. Zolotor brought to life Hyperborea. The first conception started in 2010, but it sat in a notebook as other (never to be published) stories were written first. The first book, Severed Legacy, was released in 2019. The sequel, Traitor’s Path, is scheduled for a 2021 release.
