Meet the Author

Award-winning and six-time New York Times bestselling author Christie Golden has written over forty novels and several short stories in the fields of science fiction, fantasy and horror. Among her many projects are over a dozen Star Trek novels, nearly a dozen for gaming giant Blizzard?s World of Warcraft and StarCraft novels, and three books in the nine-book Star Wars series, Fate of the Jedi, which she co-wrote with authors Aaron Allston and Troy Denning.

Golden launched the TSR Ravenloft line in 1991 with her first novel, the highly successful Vampire of the Mists, which introduced elven vampire Jander Sunstar. To the best of her knowledge, she is the creator of the elven vampire archetype in fantasy fiction.
She is the author of several original fantasy novels, including On Fire’s Wings, In Stone’s Clasp and Under Sea’s Shadow (currently available only as an e-book) the first three in her multi-book fantasy series, The Final Dance. In Stone’s Clasp won the Colorado Author?s League Award for Best Genre Novel of 2005, the second of Golden?s novels to win that award.

She is delighted to see her first two original novels, Instrument of Fate and In Stone’s Clasp, available in an entirely new format nearly fifteen years after their original publication.
