Terry Goodkind is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. His books include the eleven-volume Sword of Truth series, beginning with Wizard's First Rule, the basis for the television show Legend of the Seeker. Goodkind was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he also attended art school. Alongside a career in wildlife art, he has also been a cabinetmaker and a violin maker, and he has done restoration work on rare and exotic artifacts from around the world -- each with its own story to tell, he says. While continuing to maintain the northeastern home he built with his own hands, in recent years he and his wife Jeri have created a second home in the desert Southwest, where he now spends the majority of his time.
"Makes an indelible impact." --Publishers Weekly on Faith of the Fallen"Few writers have Goodkind's power of creation...a phenomenal piece of imaginative writing, exhaustive in its scope and riveting in its detail." --Publishing News on Temple of the Winds"Highly recommended." --San Diego Union Tribune on Temple of the Winds"Goodkind's greatest triumph: the ability to introduce immediately identifiable characters. His heroes, like us, are not perfect. Instead, each is flawed in ways that strengthen, rather than weaken their impact." --SFX on Blood of the Fold
