Leigh Eddings (7 July 1931 - 28 February 2007; 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 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 books but this was not credited as such until the publication of 'Belgarath the Sorcerer' in 1996. It was Lester del Rey who believed that multi-authorships were a problem and that it would be better if David Edding's name alone appeared on the books.
Suffering a series of strokes, Leigh died 28 February 2007 in Carson City, Nevada.
