Terry Goodkind eBooks
Terry Goodkind was born in 1948 and raised in Nebraska. Goodkind has dyslexia, which initially dissuaded him from any interest in writing. Before starting his career as a writer, Goodkind built cabinets and violins and was a marine and wildlife artist, selling his paintings in galleries.
While building his own home in the middle of a forest on Mount Desert Island, Maine, Goodkind began writing his first novel. The novel later became Wizard’s First Rule and was published in 1994. So began a series of books that formed the Sword of Truth series. Each book in the Sword of Truth series has sold better than its predecessor and to date the series has sold over twenty million copies.
While he acknowledges writing in the fantasy genre, he perceives his novels to be more than just traditional fantasy because of their focus on philosophical and human themes. Goodkind believes that using the fantasy genre allows him to better tell his stories and better convey the human themes and emotions that he desires to share with the reader.
