David Graham Edwards (born March 7, 1976) is an American author and illustrator. He is the creator and author of the Butterfly Princess series of novels. He is also the artist for the front covers of the books as well as a series of previous illustrations that depict the world and the characters of the Butterfly Princess universe. Prior to writing the novels, he was the artist of a short-lived comic strip printed in local newspapers called Wolfgang.
He is also the creator of, and primary contributor to, the Butterfly Princess wiki, though we hope to see other people contributing eventually. Maybe one day.
Edwards was born in Skokie, Illinois, but currently lives in Ogden, Utah. He is married to Elizabeth Edwards, and has four children and six cats, one of which keeps pooping on the carpet (the cats, not the children... probably).
