Cube Kid is the pen name of Erik Gunnar Taylor. A fan of video games—and particularly Minecraft—he started writing fan fiction at a very young age. His first novel, The Diary of a Minecraft Villager, was self-published as an ebook in February 2015 and quickly became tremendously successful in the Minecraft community. The novel was acquired by the French publisher Édi8, and was published for the first time in France in February 2016 under the title LE JOURNAL D'UN NOOB, with new illustrations by Saboten. The Diary of an 8-Bit Warrior series sparked worldwide interest and has evolved into several series including a graphic novel adaptation and a series for young readers that are published in 10 different languages. When he is not writing, Cube Kid loves travelling, fixing his car, voraciously reading fanfiction . . . and gaming!
