Encyclopedia > Elaine Cunningham

Elaine Cunningham (born August 12, 1957) is an American fantasy and science-fiction author, especially known for her almost poetic literary style and her contributions to the Forgotten Realms campaign world, including the realms of Evermeet, Halruaa, Ruathym and Waterdeep.


Amongst Elaine's most popular characters are the half-elf Arilyn Moonblade, the bard Danilo Thann, the quirky drow wizard Liriel Baenre and her enemy - the single-minded Gorlist, Elaith "The Serpent" Craulnober (created by Ed Greenwood), Matteo and Tzigone, and the deep dragon Zz'Pzora.


Elaine is also the New York Times bestselling author of Dark Journey, from the Star Wars New Jedi Order saga.


Elaine lives in New England with her husband and two teenage sons (both "avid" D&D gamers), and is owned by two cats, Gizmo and Bsel.

Quotes

  • (From Candlekeep (http://www.candlekeep.com) web forums): Ravens and crows will also interact with humans. Occasionally they'll imitate human behavior (such as helping gardeners pull weeds.) Sometimes they're willing to cut a deal. I've got one going with the local "raven mafia." They always gather on trash pickup day, but in exchange for some "protection bread," they'll leave my trash alone and even chase other birds away from it.
  • (From Elaine Cunningham's website (http://www.elainecunningham.com), on the subject of author photos): I find this sort of thing unnecessary and irrelevant. It's like that scene from "Wizard of Oz," when the wizard admonishes Dorothy and company, "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!" It's the illusion -- in this case, the story -- that matters. What difference does it make if an author is male or female, young or old, or for that matter, a Caucasian human or a sentient dolphin?
