Mel Odom is always trekking around in worlds of wonder when no one's looking, but he always reports back with the story. Some of the worlds are borrowed, like Forgotten Realms, but he's created a few as well. The Lost Library of Cormanthyr was his first Forgotten Realms book, and he definitely enjoys the ring of steel on steel, and the sizzle of a well-cast spell.
He has written dozens of novels over the past eleven years in several fields: fantasy, game-related fiction, science fiction, movie novelizations, horror, young adult, juvenile, computer strategy guides, action-adventure, and comics.
He lives in Moore, Oklahoma, with his wife and five children, and welcomes comments and conversation at DenimByte@aol.com. When not facing down ferocious enemies with blade and spellbook, you can often find him cheering his children on at softball games, basketball games, wrestling matches, and baseball games.
