David Eddings

David Eddings was born in Spokane, Washington, in 1931, and was raised in the Puget Sound area north of Seattle. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, in 1954 and a Master of Arts degree from the University of Washington in 1961. He served in the United States Army, worked as a buyer for the Boeing Company, as a grocery clerk, and taught English. He lived in many parts of the United States.

His first novel, High Hunt (published by Putnam in 1973), was a contemporary adventure story. The field of fantasy was always been of interest to him, however, and he turned to The Belgariad in an effort to develop certain technical and philosophical ideas concerning that genre. Many of his works after that date were co-written with his wife, Leigh, who died in 2007. The Dreamers quartet were their last novels. David Eddings passed away on June 2nd, 2009 at the age of seventy-eight.
