Drew Karpyshyn is a Canadian author and game designer. After working at a credit union for some time, he eventually became a game developer. He joined BioWare towards the end of the Baldur's Gate series, and wrote the tie-in novel for Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. He stayed with BioWare, where he worked on Neverwinter Nights, and became the Senior Writer on the critically acclaimed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

This Star Wars connection gave him the opportunity to write Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, his first hardcover. Karpyshyn still works for BioWare where he is the lead writer for the Mass Effect series.

I'm also working on couple new novel ideas, but they're very early in the process. One is a contemporary sci-fi novel set in Las Vegas; the other is an alternate history thriller set in Elizabethan England. I'll be announcing more about them as I get further along. Be sure to follow my news blog at www.drewkarpyshyn.com for all the latest on what I'm working on!(less)
