Paul B. Thompson is the author of eleven books, including many Dragonlance novels co-written with Tonya C. Cook. Their Barbarians trilogy includes Children of the Plains, Brother of the Dragon, and Sister of the Sword. When asked to name his favorite among his own novels, he always says "the newest one." He believes fiction writing is a progressive craft, and tries to improve his technique with each new work. His early ambition was to write historical novels, but finding no market for them in the late '80s, he turned his hand to fantasy and science fiction. His favorite writers in the genre include Alfred Bester, Cordwainer Smith, and L. Sprague de Camp. Paul lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with his wife Elizabeth and a ponderous collection of books, video tapes, and an aging PC.
