David Eddings

David Eddings (born July 7, 1931) is the author of several best-selling series of epic fantasy novels. David Eddings' wife, Leigh Eddings is the uncredited co-author of many of his books, and acknowledged as such in his later works.

Born in Spokane, Washington, Eddings grew up in Puget Sound before graduating with a BA from the University of Washington in 1961. Before becoming an author he worked for the United States Army and the Boeing Company.

David Eddings' first books were general fiction which sold moderately well, and after that he switched to the much more successful field of epic fantasy.
