Today Roqoo Depot would like to wish a very happy birthday to Star Wars author Sean Williams! Mr. Williams has written several Star Wars novels including Force Heretic I: Remnant, Force Heretic II: Refugee, Force Heretic III: Reunion (all of which were co-authored with Shane Dix), The Force Unleashed, The Force Unleashed II, and The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance as well as the short story Or Die Trying. Beyond Star Wars, Mr. Williams has written over 30 novels and over 70 published short stories including his latest novel Troubletwisters (co-authored with Garth Nix).

Born in Whyalla, South Australia, Sean’s parents were both teachers. Later in life he studied in both science and music winning a Young Composer’s Award for his work. After working a lot of odd and end jobs, he finally accomplished his goal of making it as a science fiction writer. His first novel Metal Fatigue was published in 1996, and since 1999 he has made a living as a full time writer. He still resides in Australia and among his many awards and accolades, he is currently the Overseas Regional Director of the SFWA.
