David Dalglish (born April 2, 1984) is an American writer of epic fantasy fiction.
Dalglish graduated with a degree in Mathematics from Missouri Southern State University in 2006.
Dalglish lives in Missouri, where he worked odd jobs before self-publishing his first novel, The Weight of Blood, in 2010. In 2013, after releasing fifteen novels as e-books and more than 200,000 sales, Dalglish signed a publishing deal with Orbit Books to re-release his Shadowdance Series of novels. Later that year, he also signed an agreement with 47North, part of Amazon Publishing, to publish a new series, The Breaking World.
All of Dalglish's work takes place within his invented world of Dezrel, and much was originally self-published: The Half-Orcs, an R.A. Salvatore-inspired series starring a pair half-orc brothers; The Shadowdance Series, a lengthy adventure starring thieves and assassins; The Paladins; and The Breaking World (published by 47North, which chronicles the creation of his world and the war between gods that is referenced in all his earlier works.) Dalglish also served as editor and main contributor to A Land of Ash, a short story compilation dealing with the fallout from the eruption of the Yellowstone Caldera. Publishers Weekly wrote that, "Dalglish puts familiar pieces together with a freshness and pleasure that are contagious." According to fantasy author Sam Sykes, "Dalglish concocts a heady cocktail of energy, breakneck pace, and excitement."
