E. E. Knight is a science fiction and fantasy author and game designer. He graduated from Northern Illinois University in 1987 with a double major in History and Political Science. Although born in La Crosse, Wisconsin, E. E. Knight grew up in Minnesota. His current works are the "Vampire Earth" and "Age of Fire" series.

When Knight is not writing or gaming, he teaches a genre fiction writing class. This is a far cry from his first job of training and cleaning up after his neighbor's field-show team of Labrador retrievers. Other jobs held by E. E.
