In the 1990s he relocated to Nevada, where, when not writing novels, he was a racing-car enthusiast.
"This is a phenomenal fantasy, endlessly inventive, that surely marks the commencement of one of the major careers in the genre. It has three things I find rare in combination: an interesting, lucid narrative; almost unremitting development and action; and some genuinely original and thoughtful aspects. Wizard's First Rule may be Terry Goodkind's first novel; his career is nevertheless already impressive." --Piers Anthony
"A wonderfully creative, seamless, and stirring epic fantasy debut." --Kirkus Reviews
"Goodkind choreographs and intricate duality in which the dividing line between good and evil is often turned upside down." --Romantic Times
