Hi, My name is Magnus Templar and I'm a College Math Teacher and bestselling author. I started playing Chess when I was 5 years old and have always been super passionate about this game. I believe Chess has sparked my passion for logical thinking which eventually led me to study Math. Now I'm not a Chess Master or a Pro Chess Player. However, Chess has always been a significant part of my life for over 45 years. I love playing the game with my friends and sister who still happens to beat me a good many times. In my spare time, I also teach kids how to play this fascinating game. I believe that the game of Chess is a cultural treasure that needs to be maintained for many generations to come. And I hope I can contribute to that goal with my beginner's series! So, don't wait too long and make your move!
