Royce Buckingham is an American fantasy writer with an English degree from Whitman College and a Law degree from the University of Oregon. He was born in Richland, Washington and grew up in the 70’s downriver from the Hanford nuclear plant, which might explain his mutated view of the world. He moved to Bellingham after law school and landing a job as a prosecuting attorney.

Royce has four published books in the United States with another on the way via St. Martin's Press: Impasse (2015). He has two best sellers in Germany, Demonkeeper (Damliche Damonen) and Mapper (Die Karte Der Welt), his first medieval fantasy, a trilogy in Germany.

Royce lives in Bellingham, WA with his wonderful wife, whom he met in the courtroom when she came to cover one of his criminal cases as a reporter. They have two fabulous boys who help with his books.
