Today Roqoo Depot wishes author Elaine Cunningham a happy birthday. Elaine is the author of the New Jedi Order novel Dark Journey, as well as two Star Wars short stories: Red Sky, Blue Flame, and The Apprentice. Aside from Star Wars Elaine has written dozens of fantasy novels, many in the Forgotten Realms setting.

Elaine got her start in writing by answering an ad in the back of a Writers Digest magazine for Forgotten Realms. In order to familiarize herself with the setting, she poured over all the novels and games. Two books in particular really caught her interest: R.A. Salvatore’s The Crystal Shard, and Jeff Grubb and Kate Novak’s Azure Bonds. All of it led to her first published novel, Elfshadow. Since then most of her novels have been in licensed settings, but recently she has begun a series of “e-riginal” fantasy novellas entitled the Tales of Sevrin. The series starts with Honor Among Thieves and will continue with Honor Bound, and Word of Honor.

You can find out more about Elaine Cunningham by visiting her website, Facebook page, or by following her on Twitter.
