Christie Golden is the author of 23 novels and more than a dozen short stories in the fields of fantasy, science fiction and horror.
She was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and has lived in Michigan, Virginia (where she went to high school with actress Sandra Bullock and attended the University of Virginia) and Colorado. Her first novel, Vampire of the Mists, launched gaming company TSR's gothic horror/fantasy line Ravenloft in 1991 and introduced the popular elven vampire Jander Sunstar. Two more Ravenloft novels followed, Dance of the Dead and The Enemy Within.
Over the next few years, Golden wrote three original fantasy novels, Instrument of Faith, King's Man and Thief and, in 1999, A.D. 999, written under the pen name of Jadrien Bell. A.D. 999 won the Colorado Authors' League Top Hand Award for Best Genre Novel of 1999.
Golden is also kept busy with various tie-in projects. To date, she's written well over a dozen novels for various incarnations of Star Trek, and has been entrusted with the "relaunch" of Star Trek: Voyager after that show ended its run on television. Look for Old Wounds and Enemy of My Enemy in November and December of 2004.
She's also written for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel anthologies and done novels based on Steven Spielberg's Invasion America animated television show. One of her proudest moments came when well-known film producer and screenwriter Harve Bennett was so impressed with her Invasion America work that he invited her to Hollywood to write for the show. Unfortunately, the show was not renewed for a second season.
Golden recently completed a three-year intensive and practicum with All Season's Chalice Church in the ceremonial and ritual arts, earning the title of Priestess of the Ceremonial Arts. She lives in Colorado with her artist husband and their two cats.
