Ann C. Crispin, 1950 - 2013

Ann Crispin's writing career began in 1983. As a writer of "tie-in" novels she was known for developing the backgrounds and emotional lives of on-screen characters.

Two of her Star Trek novels — Yesterday's Son and Time for Yesterday — were direct sequels to the third season episode "All Our Yesterdays", and detail Spock and Zarabeth's son. Yesterday's Son was the first non-novelization Star Trek novel to appear on the New York Times Best Seller list. Her later Star Trek works included the novel Sarek, which takes place afterStar Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Her best-known Star Wars work, The Han Solo Trilogy, chronicles the life of Han Solo prior to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Crispin also wrote the novelizations for The V miniseries and the film Alien Resurrection, as well as Sylvester, a girl and horse film starring Melissa Gilbert. She also created her own Starbridge series of novels, aimed primarily at young readers.

Crispin served as Eastern Regional Director, and then Vice President, of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. With Victoria Strauss, she founded Writer Beware, a "watchdog" group that is part of SFWA that warns aspiring writers about the dangers of scam agents, editors, and publishers. Writer Beware was founded in 1998, and has assisted law enforcement and civil authorities in tracking and shutting down writing scams.

On April 19, 2013, Crispin was named the 2013 Grandmaster by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers (IAMTW).
