Gregory Keyes ( Gregory Keyes ) Country: USA Born: 1963-04-11 Biography: Gregory Keyes is an American born in 1963 in Meridian, Mississippi. When he was young, due to his father`s work, his family moved to the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. Very quickly, the Navajo language became a second native for the four-year-old Gregory. Keyes says his early exposure to Navajo culture sparked an interest in linguistics, customs, myths and legends from other nations. Perhaps it was also the long evenings when members of his "big, motley family of inventors" got together and told each other stories, or maybe a particle of Choctaw blood flowing in his veins influenced him. Kees earned a BS in anthropology from the University of Mississippi. For some time he worked as an archaeologist. Then he earned a master`s degree in anthropology from the University of Georgia in Athens, where he stayed to teach and write his Ph.D. thesis in anthropology on the topic of belief systems and mythology. It was then that in the evenings after work he began to write, but not yet fiction. He wrote down the myths and legends of the Indians of the southeastern America. He married Nell Webb, a jeweler. Currently, Gregory Keys is a professional writer, lives with his wife in Seattle, where Nell studies metalworking at the university. In his free time he is engaged in foil fencing, which he became interested in when he began to collect materials for writing "The Age of Unreason". Also likes to cook exotic dishes, usually from Central American, Chinese, Malay or Turkish cuisine. In 1996 his debut novel, the epic fantasy "The Waterborn" (nominated for "Locus" -1997 (3rd place in the category of debut novels)) was published, which marked the beginning of the "Children of the Changeling" dilogy. This was followed by the sequel "The Black God" (1997; nominated for "Locus" -1998 (22nd place)). As far as I understand, it was these novels that were published in 1999 by ACT in the Dragon Age series under the titles Children of the Great River and Spirits of the Great River. Then Keyes took up the tetralogy Age of Unreason (originally a trilogy was planned) - Newton & # 039; s Cannon (1998; awarded the French Grand Prix de l & # 039; Imaginaire -2002; nominated for Locus -1999 ( 6th place)), “A Calculus of Angels” (1999; nominated for Locus-2000 (9th place), reached the final “Endeavor Award” -2000), “Empire of Unreason” (2000; nominated for Locus-2001 (21 place)) and "The Shadows of God" (2001; nominated for "Locus" -2002 (22nd place)). Author`s site: www.gregkeyes.com Source: http://www.fantlab.ru/autor153, wikipedia .
