About this author

Christopher Paolini was born on November 17, 1983 in Southern California. He has lived most of his life in Paradise Valley, Montana with his parents and younger sister, Angela. The tall, jagged Beartooth Mountains rise on one side of Paradise Valley. Snowcapped most of the year, they inspired the fantastic scenery in the Inheritance Cycle.

Christopher is grateful to all his readers. He is especially heartened to hear that his books have inspired young people to read and to write stories of their own. Although Christopher will one day return to Alagaësia, he is currently working on a science fiction novel.

The idea for the Inheritance Cycle came from my love for the magic of stories and how they can transport the reader into fantastical places. Also, I was inspired by this book, Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher, by Bruce Coville, the tale of a boy who b ...more
