KEITH R.A. DeCANDIDO

KEITH R.A. DeCANDIDO

International best-selling author Keith R.A. DeCandido was born, raised, educated, and still lives in the Bronx. His Mom and Dad fed him a steady diet of Robert A. Heinlein, Ursula K. Le Guin, J.R.R. Tolkien, and P.G. Wodehouse, which corrupted him for life -- not only instilling in him a great love of science fiction, fantasy, and silly British humor, but also likely being responsible for his pretentious insistence on using both his middle initials all the time.

Keith has published over thirty novels, most of them in the realm of media tie-ins. The majority of his work has appeared in the worlds of Star Trek: Keith has written novels, novellas, comic books, short stories, and eBooks, and also edited several anthologies that cover all five TV shows as well as several prose-only series. Several of his Trek novels have hit the USA Today best-seller list, and received critical acclaim from all over the map, both online and in print, and Keith also continues to edit the monthly Star Trek eBook line.

He has also written in the worlds of Blizzard Games, Doctor Who, Farscape, Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda, Marvel Comics, Young Hercules, Serenity, and of course Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and many more.

In 2004, Dragon Precinct, Keith’s first non-tie-in novel, was published.

Keith is a professional musician, currently the percussionist for the parody band the Boogie Knights.

Besides all this, Keith is a student of Kenshikai Karate, and an amateur actor and voiceover actor.
