Fantasy novelist who, along with Tracy Hickman, was one of the original creators of the Dragonlance game world. I've written numerous novels and short stories set in the world of Krynn, as well as series in other, original worlds. These include: Darksword, Rose of the Prophet, Star of the Guardians, DeathGate, Dragonvarld, Sovereign Stone, Dragonships, and the Dragon Brigade. I also wrote two paranormal romance novels, Fallen Angel and Warrior Angel, with my daughter, Elizabeth Baldwin. I graduated from the University of Missouri–Columbia and now live in Wisconsin with dogs, Max, Dixie, Joey the Thug and Clancy the Hooligan.

I am currently working on the third book in the Dragon Brigade series, the Seventh Sigil. The first book is Shadow Ra

I had to find a reason Raistlin looked this way, so different from his twin brother. That led me to think the alteration had something to do with his magic. That led me to developing the Test in the Tower and then I wondered what his over protective brother would think about Raistlin risking his life. And that led me to understanding the nature of their relationship. Thanks!(less)

“Words can never fully say what we want them to say, for they fumble, stammer, and break the best porcelain. The best one can hope for is to find along the way someone to share the path, content to walk in silence, for the heart communes best when it does not try to speak.”
Margaret Weis, Dragons of a Lost Star

“Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it."

"Are you saying we shouldn't hope?"

"I'm saying we should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open!”
Margaret Weis

Thank you so much!


Stefan Yates Thanks for accepting my friend request! Dragons of Autumn Twilight (and to an extent the rest of the Chronicles and Legends) is one of my all time favorite nostalgic books to read. It was the first book that I actually bought with my own money. I just couldn't pass up the paperback display kiosk in B. Dalton Booksellers at Bannister Mall (of course, the cover art is what originally drew me in, those original covers on the Chronicles were amazing!) and the story hooked me immediately. You and Mr. Hickman were a huge influence on my literary pursuits for many, many years and I thank you both profusely!
