Sean Williams is the author of over eighty published short stories and thirty-nine novels, including Twinmaker and, with Garth Nix, the Troubletwister series. He has co-written three books in the Star Wars: New Jedi Order series and is a multiple recipient of both the Ditmar and Aurealis Awards. His novelisation of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was the first novelisation of a computer game to debut at number one on the New York Times bestseller list. Sean was Chair of the SA Writers' Centre from 2001-2003, and is one of only three lifetime members of that institution. He has tutored for the Clarion South Workshop, was a previous winner of the Writers of the Future contest, and is now a judge for the same. He lives in Adelaide.
'The reason why I haven't given up completely on fantasy trilogies is because there are people out there who believe in the genre and continue to put out interesting books rather than following the formula. Sean Williams is one of those people.' Cheryl Morgan'Whip-crack adventure ... [Williams'] layering of innocence and mystery and unknown forces is very effective, as is the scale of his vision.'
