Robert Anthony Salvatore (born January 20, 1959) is a science-fiction and fantasy author best known for his Forgotten Realms and Star Wars novels.
Robert Salvatore was born in Leominster, Massachusetts. During his time at Fitchburg State College, he became interested in literature, particularly fantasy, after reading J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, given to him by a friend while in high school. He earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications from his university, and later returned to receive a Bachelor of Arts in English.
In 1982 he started writing more seriously, developing a manuscript he titled Echoes of the Fourth Magic. He went on to publish several series of books in the Forgotten Realms campaign world, while lately his popularity surged due to his Demon Wars sagas and his two Star Wars books.
One of his most popular characters is Drizzt Do'Urden, a drow, or dark elf, portrayed against the stereotypes of his race, who fights for what he believes is right.
In addition to his novels, Salvatore wrote the story for the PS2 and Xbox video game Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone (2004), working with the design team at Stormfront Studios. The game was published by Atari and was nominated for awards by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences and BAFTA.
Salvatore is a New York Times bestselling author.
