Cedric Goudy was born and raised in the beautiful city of Bountiful, Utah located in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains.
Cedric’s time away from school and family were spent largely at the Bountiful Recreation center, where he attended karate classes under the direction of Sensei Youngblood, a man that had a huge impact on Cedric’s life. It was in karate class that Mr. Goudy learned lessons of discipline, perseverance, endurance and accomplishment. While attending high school, Cedric hung out with his friends Tim and Roger who are inspiration for characters in this novel, (they really are characters) thanks guys for the good times! After graduating from Woods Cross High School (Go Wildcats!) Cedric spent some time helping people in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Upon returning home he met, dated and married his wife, they have been married for more than twenty-five years. Together they have four children.
Mr. Goudy is an accomplished martial artist. Under the experienced teaching of Master Brinkerhoff, Cedric trained for and earned his black belt in a Filipino style martial art. While training for his black belt, Cedric learned that the greatest foe we will ever face is ourselves. We can have continuous personal improvement as we strive to conquer our own doubts and fears.
Mr. Goudy now resides in northwest, Utah where he lives with his wife, and two dogs, Kiah and Nina. He spends his free time, when he can find it, hiking and running with his wife and lifting weights, and hunting in southern Utah.
Cedric loves the beauty and majesty of Utah and her many vistas and opportunities for recreation and of course her rich history.
Hopefully many more novels will come with the southwest being the main backdrop.
