Born in New York City,[1] Coe was the winner of the William L.

It concluded with Weavers of War.

Coe is one of the founding members of the blog, MagicalWords.net.[4] Magical Words is dedicated to helping newer writers with all aspects of the craft and business of writing, and a book based on the blog, How To Write Magical Words: A Writer's Companion was published by Bella Rosa Books in 2011.[5]

Coe has had short stories published on SciFi.com and is currently developing two new fantasy series: Blood of the Southlands and the Case Files of Justis Fearsson. He lives with his wife, Nancy Berner, and their two daughters, Alex (19) and Erin (16) on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee.
