Caiseal (pronounced Cash'l) is Gaelic for "great stone fort". Caiseal Mór is a bestselling fantasy novelist. He is an Australian of Irish descent. Irish folklore is an inspiration for his works. Mor also composes and records music, with twelve albums so far and another one on the way over the next year. He is well known for his lavish book and album covers, usually designed by himself. As a child he was diagnosed on the autism spectrum, which was kept a secret from the wider public until disclosed in his autobiography A Blessing and a Curse; Autism and Me (2007).

Recurring themes in Mor's novels include religion, theology, gods and deities, magic, kingship and ancient times. His books are set in Ireland, Scotland and a personal interpretation of the Celtic Otherworld which he refers to as the Far Country.
