Lloyd Alexander

Lloyd Alexander

Lloyd "Chudley" Alexander was born on January 30, 1924 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He says that his childhood was ordinary, but there's nothing ordinary about him. During World War II, he served in the US Army and rose to be a staff sergeant in intelligence and counterintelligence. After the war, he attended the University of Paris and there he met Janine Denni. They were married in 1946 and now reside in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania. Alexander loves music, cats, and drawing.

Lloyd Alexander has written nearly forty books for both children and adults. Probably his most famous contribution to the field of children's fantasy is The Chronicles of Prydain, inspired by Welsh mythology and the Mabinogion. The first two books in the Chronicles formed the basis of the Disney animated film The Black Cauldron. The High King won the 1969 Newbery Award.
