Terry Goodkind


USA flag (1948 - 2020)

Terry Goodkind was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he attended art school, one of his many interests on the way to becoming a writer. Besides a career in wildlife art, he had been a cabinet maker, violin maker, and had done restoration work on rare and exotic artifacts from around the world -- each with its own story to tell, he said. In 1983 Goodkind moved to the forested mountains he loved. There, in the woods near the ocean, he built the house where he and his wife, Jeri, lived, and came at last to tell his own stories.
