David Zindell was born November 28, 1952 in Toledo Ohio, but has lived all over the US. At the University of Colorado, Boulder, he earned a B.A. in mathematics (1984), while minoring in anthropology, before turning to writing. Though his first sale, "The Dreamer's Sleep", appeared in Fantasy Book in 1984, he became known in the field when his SF story "Shanidar" won the first Writers of the Future Contest in 1985. He was nominated for the John W. Campbell Award in 1986. His first novel, Neverness (1988), was connected to the "Shanidar" universe, and the story continues in the "Requiem for Homo Sapiens" SF trilogy: The Broken God (1993), The Wild (1996), and The War in Heaven (1998). His first two novels were nominated for Arthur C. Clarke Awards.

He married Melody Scott in 1980 (divorced 1994) and has two daughters. He lives in Boulder, Colorado.
