About the author (1996)

Tracy Hickman was born a Mormon on November 26, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He attended Marlon Hills Elementary School, where he wrote his first novel. The family moved to Vegas in 1966 when his father was offered a teaching job there, and Hickman transferred to Ruby Thomas Elementary School. They eventually moved back to Utah, and Tracy went to Provo High School where he took part in the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.. While in high school, he had many odd jobs such as a paper boy, a stock boy at a supermarket, and an usher at a movie theater. He graduated from Provo High School in 1974. Hickman entered the Missionary Home in Salt Lake City in 1975. From there, he was sent to Hawaii for language training for his eventual trip to Singapore. He was stationed in Hawaii and taught at the Mission House there while waiting for his visa to come in. He did get to Indonesia and stayed there for a year and a half, preaching the Mormon way of life. He was honorably released in 1977, and held a series of odd jobs after returning to the states. He was a glass worker, a television assistant director and a drill press operator in a geneology center. In 1981, Hickman approached TSR about buying two of his gaming modules. He was hired by the company instead and began working with Margaret Weis. The two wrote the "DragonLance Chronicles" together, and since 1985, they have written over 40 books. Hickman wrote two solo novels in 1996, "Requiem of Stars" and "The Immortals.
