Christopher Paolini Profile Picture

Christopher James Paolini, born in Southern California in 1983, has lived most of his life in Paradise Valley, Montana. Homeschooled by his parents, he graduated from high school at fifteen. Paolini was also fifteen when he wrote the first draft of Eragon, which his family self-published in 2001. Carl Hiaasen's stepson found and loved the book and Hiaasen brought it to his publisher. Re-published in 2003, Eragon became an international sensation, reaching a worldwide audience. Paolini became the youngest-ever bestselling author of book series. Eragon was followed by three other novels in the Inheritance Cycle. The movie adaptation of Eragon was released in 2006.
