David Debord

Biography

David Debord began writing at age twelve after reading The Hobbit. He wrote two pages of a story about rogue dwarf warriors name Rancor and Ramoc. His mother found and read the pages, traumatizing him to the point that he did not attempt another fantasy novel for fifteen years.

His love of the fantasy genre was renewed years later when he discovered the works of Robert Jordan, David Eddings, Raymond Feist and George R.R. Martin. The world of Gameryah and the Absent Gods series is a byproduct of his love of epic fantasy inspired by these literary giants.

A proud wearer of “Fat Elvis” ties, David Debord lives in metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia with his wife and two daughters. When not writing, he attempts to teach Language Arts to teenagers. He releases his frustrations at minor league hockey games. He doesn’t play- just screams a lot. He is hard at work on the second Absent Gods book entitled Keeper of the Mists.
