"A long time ago, in a movie theater far, far away…a 13-old-girl had her universe completely, utterly, and irrevocably changed. Yep, I'm talking about Star Wars. Back in the good old days my mom would drop me off for the 1:00 show and pick me up sometime around 6:30. I'd watch that movie again and again and again…absorbing it into my very soul, probably."
―Christie Golden[src]

Christie Golden is an award-winning author of many science fiction and fantasy novels, and is one of the authors for the Fate of the Jedi series.[1]


Christie Golden was born on November 21, 1963 in Atlanta, Georgia. At thirteen years of age, Golden would spend entire afternoons watching Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.[2]

Golden worked as one of the three authors in the nine-book Fate of the Jedi series. Her first entry into both the series and into the Expanded Universe in general, Fate of the Jedi: Omen, reached #4 on the New York Times bestseller list and #3 on the Publisher's Weekly bestseller list.[3] Golden also wrote a short story prequel to Omen that focuses on Vestara Khai. The short story was exclusive to Hyperspace members, and is titled Imprint.

Golden was to write a Star Wars trilogy focusing on Jaina Solo Fel and her husband Jagged Fel called Sword of the Jedi.[4] The series was canceled indefinitely due to the announcement from Disney Publishing Worldwide and Random House about the relaunch of the Star Wars adult novel continuity.[5][6] Following the reorganization of the canon structure under Disney, Golden returned to write the novel Dark Disciple, a story focused on Quinlan Vos and Asajj Ventress towards the end of the Clone Wars.[7]
