Utah State University is pleased to have Tyler Whitesides for a campus visit on Thursday, October 11th at 11:30 AM in Room 101 of the Merrill_Cazier Library. Whitesides' latest novel is The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn.

The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn is the first in an action-packed epic fantasy series featuring master con artist Ardor Benn. Ardor Benn is no ordinary thief. Rakish, ambitious, and master of wildly complex heists, he styles himself a Ruse Artist Extraordinaire.

When a priest hires him for the most daring ruse yet, Ardor knows he'll need more than quick wit and sleight of hand. Assembling a dream team of forgers, disguisers, schemers, and thieves, he sets out to steal from the most powerful king the realm has ever known. But it soon becomes clear there's more at stake than fame and glory - Ard and his team might just be the last hope for human civilization.
Tyler Whitesides was born in Washington state. The youngest of five siblings, he was raised in northern Utah where he still resides. Tyler spent much of his childhood outdoors, exploring the mountains near his house, and imagining many adventures with his neighborhood friends. He developed a love of books from a very young age, and with that came a desire to write his own stories. He is now represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette of Erin Murphy Literary Agency.

This event was made possible with support from Utah State University, Helicon West, and Utah Humanities.
