John Anthony Flanagan is an Australian fantasy author best known for his medieval fantasy series, the Ranger's Apprentice , and its sister series, the Brotherband Chronicles. John Flanagan was born in Sydney, Australia on 22 May As he grew up, he changed careers and got a job at an advertising agency.
He originally planned to become a trainee copywriter, but the agency instead assigned him to train as a media researcher. While working as a media researcher trainee, he wrote an offensive poem directed toward one of his senior executives. Eventually the poem made it to the desk of one of the company's directors.
Flanagan was called into the director's office where he complimented Flanagan's writing skills and offered him the job of trainee copywriter.
Flanagan's early novels originated mainly as thrillers. The series originated as twenty short stories for his twelve-year-old son, Michael. Flanagan wanted to encourage his son to read and hoped that he could do so by convincing Michael that the stories were children's book ideas that his father wanted to test out.
Will, the main character in the series, was initially based on Michael. Small, agile, and his love of climbing were all things that Michael and Will shared. Evanlyn, one of the other main characters, was loosely based on Flanagan's daughter Katie. Finally, Halt, Will's older teacher, was also based on Flanagan's sixth grade teacher. He has also written the Ranger's Apprentice: The Early Years series which explores the time before the first book, and has continued the story in the Ranger's Apprentice: The Royal Ranger series.
His other series in the same world, Brotherband , was based around Flanagan's passion and love of the sea . From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Australian fantasy author.
