Creator: Terry Goodkind
Terry Goodkind is a novelist who has written the best-selling Sword of Truth series. He is currently working under contract for two different publishers, Putnam and Tor. Under his contract with Putnam he is obligated to write three novels, the first of which, The Law of Nines, was released in Summer 2009. Under the contract with Tor, he continued his Sword of Truth series with a new trilogy, starting with The Omen Machine in 2011, The Third Kingdom in 2013, and ending with Severed Souls in 2013. A prequel novella, The First Confessor: The Legend of Magda Searus was published in 2012.

Goodkind likes to consider himself a philosophical novelist rather than a fantasy author. His later books in the Sword of Truth series have a strong Objectivist slant.

Not to be confused with Terry Brooks.
