Author

David Mark Weber is an American science fiction and fantasy author. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1952. He started writing poetry and short fiction in the fifth grade, and a lifetime of reading, writing, and studying has given him a love of storytelling that clearly shows in his work. In his stories, he creates a consistent and rationally explained technology and society. Even when dealing with fantasy themes, the magical powers are treated like another technology with supporting rational laws and principles. Many of his stories have military, and particularly naval, themes, and fit into the military science fiction genre. He challenges current gender roles in the military by assuming that a gender-neutral military service will exist in his futures. By frequently placing female leading characters in what have previously been seen as traditionally male roles, he has explored the challenges faced by women in the military and politics. His most popular and enduring character is Honor Harrington, whose story, together with the "Honorverse" she inhabits, has been developed through nineteen novels, six shared-universe anthologies, a three book young-adult series, and Honorverse historical Manticore Ascendant series, written with Timothy Zahn and Tom Pope. To date, David currently has seventy six book titles and twenty one separate series that he has written or co-written. David currently lives in Greenville, SC with his wife Sharon, their three children, three dogs and four cats.
