About the Author

Before becoming involved with Star Wars and Lucasfilm, Dr. David West Reynolds earned his Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology at the University of Michigan, specializing in ancient Egypt and Imperial Rome. His studies and field work have taken him to places as diverse as Anasazi cliff cities in Utah, Inca fortresses in the mountains of Peru, and Swahili ruins in the jungles of East Africa. In addition to his scholarly work, Dr. Reynolds taught archaeology in the college classroom, as well as guiding tours in the field. In 1995 Reynolds undertook a project to re-locate the filming sites in North Africa where the desert planet scenes had been shot in 1976 for the first Star Wars movie. Employing his archaeological skills he successfully tracked down these remote sites and even found 20-year-old Star Wars props still lying out in the open desert. Reynolds wrote a popular magazine article about his journey, and was surprised to receive a call from Lucasfilm. The company revealed that all their records of the old sites had been lost, and they asked him to guide them back to the Star Wars locations in search of sites for the new film, The Phantom Menace. Reynolds subsequently carried out further Star Wars location scouting in South America, but it was for his communication skills that he was eventually hired full-time by Lucasfilm. At Skywalker Ranch, Reynolds held a position on the marketing team behind the record-setting launch of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. In the last two years, in addition to numerous magazine articles he has written several Star Wars books. Four of those books have been New York Times bestsellers, one reaching #1 on that list. Reynolds is now a full-time author and consultant, president and CEO of the consulting firm Phaeton Group Inc., a "constellation of talents" ranging from communications and marketing specialists to scientific engineering, and security experts. A man of many interests, Reynolds has written video games, climbed to the highest mountains in several countries, excavated rare dinosaur eggshells, and researched thousand-year-old books at the Vatican manuscript library. In the course of unusual consulting work he has sculpted a full-size dinosaur skeleton, created models of historic 1950s spacecraft designs, and acted as writer-presenter for television documentaries, including an appearance on Omnibus for the BBC. In his former home state of Indiana, Reynolds explored unmapped caves and learned the sport of rock climbing. Dr. Reynolds remains active in archaeology, continuing to publish scholarly articles and deliver invited lectures as he develops new projects in urban and color analysis for the field. Reynolds lives with his wife Ann in Marin County, California, and spends his spare time touring the beautiful California coast.
