David Eddings

David Eddings

David Eddings (1931–2009) was an American author. Eddings' first books were general fiction and sold moderately. He later switched to writing epic fantasy novels and achieved best-selling status. David Eddings' wife, Leigh Eddings (1937–2007), is uncredited as co-author on many of his early books, but he later acknowledged that she contributed to them all.

Born in Spokane, Washington, and raised in the Puget Sound area north of Seattle, he received his 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, and was also a grocery clerk and a college English teacher.
