Christie Golden is the author of numerous Warcraft novels. She has also written for Blizzard's StarCraft series, and is an experienced writer of "Star Trek: Voyager" novels.

She was first approached by Blizzard after the cancellation of Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans in 1998. The storyline of the game was far too important to disregard as it set the stage for the entire Horde campaign in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. Christie Golden was then hired to write the novelization based on scripts and outlines provided by Warcraft universe co-creator, Chris Metzen, and had to be completed within six weeks. The book was released under the title Lord of the Clans about a year prior to Warcraft III.

Ms. Golden lives with her boyfriend and cats in Denver, Colorado. She plays on the Wyrmrest Accord server, but does not release the names of her player characters. She started playing after four months since launch.[1]

On May 15, 2017 she announced on Twitter that is now working at Blizzard.[2] While she cannot yet say what the job is, it appears to be a temporary job lasting six months.[3]
