About the author (1985)

David Eddings is a writer and educator. He was born on July 7, 1931 in Spokane, Washington. Eddings attended Reed College in Portland and earned a B.A. in 1954. In 1961, he earned his M.A. from the University of Washington, writing part of a novel as his Master's thesis. After serving in the U.S. Army in Germany, Eddings began working as a grocery clerk. He later worked for the Boeing Company, placing Minuteman missiles throughout the U.S. Eddings spent a few years teaching English in a business college and a teachers' college. Eddings' first novel, High Hunt, was an outdoor adventure about a group of men on a deer hunt in the mountains of Washington State. After nine years, Eddings published Pawn of Prophecy, the first of the Belgariad series. The success of that series led to three more, the Mallorean, the Elenium, and the Dreamers. He collaborated with his wife Leigh Eddings on many of his books. He currently lives in Carson City, Nevada.
