C. David Belt was born in the wilds of Evanston, WY. As a child, he lived and traveled extensively around the Far East.
In Thailand, he once fed so many bananas to a monkey, the poor monkey swore off bananas for life.
He served as an LDS missionary in South Korea and southern California (Korean-speaking), and yes, he loves kimchi.
He graduated from Brigham Young University with a BS in Computer Science and a minor in Aerospace Studies,
but he managed to bypass all English or writing classes.
He served as a B-52 pilot in the US Air Force and as an Air Weapons Controller in the
Washington Air National Guard and was deployed to locations so secret, his family still does not know where he
risked life and limb (other than in an 192' wingspan aircraft flying 200' off the ground in mountainous terrain).
When he is not writing, he sings in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and works as a software engineer. He collects
swords, spears, and axes (oh, my!), and other medieval weapons and armor. He and his wife have six children and live in
Utah with an eclectus parrot named Mork (who likes to jump on
the keyboard when David is writing). There is also a cat, but she can't be bothered to take notice of the parrot,
and so that is all the mention we shall make of her.
