Michael Hoffen has been interested in ancient languages and studying the past from a young age. His first formal venture into history was a research paper focusing on criminal schemes and fraud in late 19th-century United States, for which he became the Concord Review's youngest-ever recipient of the Emerson Prize. Michael has been studying Middle Egyptian and Latin since he was thirteen years old, and began this book during the summer of 2021. Outside of his academics, he enjoys biking, rock climbing, and swimming.
