The Works of C. David Belt

About the Author

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 a Latter-day Saint 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). He sang as a baritone in the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square for fifteen years. When he is not writing, he works as a software engineer and collects and (obsessively) researches swords, spears, and axes (oh, my!), and other medieval weapons and armor. He and his wife have six children and live in Utah.
