Our favorite author and the man behind the fantasy series that has brought us all here turns twenty-six today! It’s hard to believe that Christopher Paolini sat down as a teenager over ten years ago and began what would become one of the most beloved fantasy novels of our generation. Since then, Christopher has inspired thousands of young adults to pick up a pen and paper to weave a fantasy tale of their own. His hard word, dedication, and imagination has shown even society’s most stubborn that a person’s age no longer dictates one’s accomplishments.
We all wish you a very happy birthday, Christopher! Just make sure to save us a bit of cake.
