About Costen

As a precociouCosten Young, author of In the Witchs Shadows five-year-old, Costen helped Luke Skywalker and company take down the Death Star— in his young imagination anyway.  Not long after that, he took a fateful journey with a hobbit, a wizard and thirteen dwarves to separate a dragon from his ill-gotten hoard. 

He went on to snare a degree in Communications from Shepherd University, and later returned to add another in accounting.  Over the years, he’s worked as a machinist, an accountant, a news reporter and a little bit of everything in between.

Costen currently lives near Shepherdstown, WV with two loyal (if demanding) cats and as yet unfulfilled plans for world domination.
