Who We Are

It is due to you and your encouragement and your support that RBF has people to sit its board and share its responsibilities. Thanks to you, RBF can pursue its vision to put heroics into print and into hands and hearts around the globe. Only with the power you wield when you decide to share our mission and give your money do the people listed here matter. Without you there is no us. Change the world—help Rogue Blades Foundation put the Heroics in Reading!

Ty Johnston

Reader, writer, editor, publisher, and general promoter of the heroic. Grandfather, husband, father, and Texas rancher too. I believe in heroes, and in the reading and sharing of heroes, so that's why putting heroes into heroics for all readers is important to me. My reading delights run from David Gemmell, Robert E. Howard, and Steven Erikson to Max Brand, Louis L'Amour, and John Benteen to Barry Sadler, Alistair MacLean, and Robert Ludlum to Alexandre Dumas, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Percy Bysshe Shelley. As for my own writing, lots of stacks of paper exist, but Direk, Lord of Vengeance is my S&S-style character, and Victory: Thoughts and Poetry of Battle is a collaboration showcasing some of my poetry.
