Christie GoldenAward-winning local author Christie Golden a familiar figure at Starcon! She has written twenty-eight novels and several short stories in the fields of science fiction, fantasy and horror. She has over a million books in print.

2004 saw the launch of a brand new, multi-book fantasy series called The Final Dance, from new fantasy imprint LUNA. The first two novels, On Fire’s Wings and In Stone’s Clasp, came out in 2004 and 2005. August 2006 will see On Fire’s Wings published in mass market paperback.

Golden is also the author of two original fantasy novels from Ace Books, King’s Man and Thief and Instrument of Fate, which made the 1996 Nebula Preliminary Ballot. Under the pen name of Jadrien Bell, she wrote a historical fantasy thriller entitled A.D. 999, which won the Colorado Author's League Top Hand Award for Best Genre Novel of 1999.

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. Golden followed up Vampire with Dance of the Dead and The Enemy Within. She is delighted to report that in September of 2006, Vampire of the Mists will be reprinted in trade paperback—with a new cover featuring Jander.

Other projects include a slew of Star Trek novels, among them The Murdered Sun, Marooned, and Seven of Nine, and The Dark Matters Trilogy, Cloak and Dagger, Ghost Dance and Shadow of Heaven.

The Voyager novel re-launch, which includes Homecoming and The Farther Shore, were bestsellers and were the fastest-selling Trek novels of 2003. Golden followed these up with the two-part Spirit Walk, which included Old Wounds and Enemy of my Enemy. Trek work has been put on hold while Golden completes four projects for the gaming company Blizzard—a Warcraft novel entitled Rise of the Horde, which will be published in 2006, and a trilogy based on the Starcraft game. As her previous Warcraft novel Lord of the Clans was well-received and a pleasure to write—and as she’s a fan of World of Warcraft--Golden is obviously having a wonderful time.

Golden has also written the novelization of Steven Spielberg's Invasion America and an original "prequel," On The Run, both of which received high praise from producer Harve Bennett. On The Run, a combination medical thriller and science fiction adventure, even prompted Bennett to invite Golden to assist in crafting the second season of the show, if it was renewed.

Golden lives in Loveland, Colorado, with her artist husband Michael Georges and their two cats. Her website is www.christiegolden.com.
