Michael Macauley was first inspired to start shurtugal.com when he read Eragon in high school. Since then, his website has become the premier Inheritance fan site and a major source of information for the online fan community. Mike has travelled all over the world to discuss the Inheritance series and has had extensive access to author Christopher Paolini from the beginning. The insider details that he has gathered during his years behind the scenes inspired him to create The Inheritance Almanac. Mike lives in Massachusetts. Visit him at www.shurturgal.com.
