Keith R. A. DeCandido is a prolific author of Star Trek books, novellas, short stories, eBooks, and comic books. He co-created the Star Trek: Corps of Engineers (formerly Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers) eBook series with John J. Ordover, and has written more eBooks in the series than anyone else. He has edited or co-edited several Trek short story collections, and was the editor responsible for the Star Trek original eBook line from 2000-2008, which included not only CoE, but the anniversary miniseries Mere Anarchy and Slings and Arrows.
He has written stories based on the first five live-action Star Trek TV series, including the first single story to encompass all five (The Brave and the Bold), as well as several of the prose-only series. He is also the creator of the Star Trek: Klingon Empire (formerly Star Trek: IKS Gorkon) novel series.
In 2009, DeCandido was named a Grandmaster by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers, for his extensive body of work in tie-ins.
He lives in New York City.
