VJ Books Presents Author Timothy Zahn!

Author Timothy ZahnTimothy Zahn was born in Chicago in 1951 and grew up in the western suburb of Lombard, and is a writer of science fiction short stories and novels. He attended Michigan State University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in physics in 1973. He then moved to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and achieved an M.S. degree in physics in 1975. While he was pursuing a doctorate in physics, his thesis adviser quite suddenly died, leaving Zahn with four years of thesis work down the drain. Zahn never completed the doctorate.

In 1975, he began a new hobby: writing science fiction. At first a strictly spare-time avocation, over the next three years he gradually gave more time to it until he sold his first story in December 1978 (Ernie, Analog, September 1979). In 1980 he left grad school and began writing full time. He is the Hugo Award-winning author of more than fifty original novels. His original novels include the Cobra series as well as the Dragonborn series for young adults

He is best known as the author of a plethora of Star Wars novels. The Thrawn trilogy marked a revival in the fortunes of the Star Wars franchise, bringing it widespread attention for the first time in years; all three Thrawn-trilogy novels made the New York Times best-seller lists, and set the stage and tone for most of the franchise's Expanded-Universe content. While many of Zahn's characters have been embraced by franchise writers and readers, some still appearing in novels written seventeen years later, Thrawn has been particularly influential.

Zahn lives on the Oregon Coast with his family.
