Christopher Paolini is the author of the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', a series of DoorStopper novels. He finished writing the first book, ''Eragon'', at the age of nineteen. It was published [[UltimateJobSecurity by his parents]] before Knopf, a publishing company, picked it up (his parents started an independent publishing company to produce the book; it is an UrbanLegend that they already owned one a company the author describes as [[http://fantasy-faction.com/2012/christopher-paolini-interview "my parents, my sister and myself, sitting around our kitchen table"]]). To many people's surprise, it took off, mostly because of fantastic marketing on behalf of Paolini and his family, such as months of visiting schools across the United States to promote the book.

* AuthorAvatar: Paolini himself admits that Angela is based on his sister, and that Eragon "started out" as an autobiographical character but eventually developed into his own character. Interestingly, he claimed Eragon developed into his own by learning awesome swordplay and riding a dragon...so yeah, Eragon is just CP with wish fulfillment.

A homeschooled Montana native, he's become quite the controversial figure. He has many fans, as well as many detractors, mostly due to having used many familiar ideas, plot points, and tropes; ''StarWars'', ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', and ''DragonridersOfPern'' are obvious influences.
