About KJA

I am the author of more than 140 books, 56 of which have appeared on national or international bestseller lists. My work has been translated into 30 languages, and I have over 23 million books in print. I have won or been nominated for the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, Shamus, Scribe, Lifeboat to the Stars, and Colorado Book Award.

I have written numerous Star Wars projects, three X-Files novels, fifteen bestselling Dune novels with Brian Herbert, and also collaborated with Dean Koontz on Frankenstein: Prodigal Son, which sold a million copies in the first year of its release. I wrote the epic SF series The Saga of Seven Suns and two steampunk fantasy adventure novels with legendary Rush drummer Neil Peart, based on the concept CD, Clockwork Angels. I also write a humorous horror series featuring Dan Shamble, Zombie PI.

I’ve written comics for Star Wars, X-Files, JSA, Star Trek, and many more. I am a proud honorary member of the 501st Legion.

As publishers of WordFire Press, my wife Rebecca Moesta and I have released more than 300 titles from Alan Dean Foster, Frank Herbert, Jody Lynn Nye, Allen Drury, Mike Resnick, Jay Lake, Brian Herbert, and Ken Scholes, as well as our own backlist.

I climb mountains. My wife and I have been married for twenty-six years; we live in a castle in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
