Leigh Eddings (née Judith Leigh Schall), was the wife of David Eddings and co-author of many of his later works and uncredited co-author of his early works, and married him 27 October 1962.

She met Eddings in Seattle. She was part Choctaw. She had been in the Air Force and had been described by her husband as a world-class cook, a highly skilled fisherwoman and an excellent markswoman.

She co-authored High Hunt with David, and all other co-authored books were not credited until the publication of Belgarath the Sorcerer in 1996. Lester del Rey believed that multi-authored books were a problem and that it would be better if David Edding's name alone appeared on the books, so her contributions were unacknowledged.

Suffering a series of strokes, Leigh died 28 February 2007 in Carson City, Nevada.
