He has also collaborated on numerous series novels, including Star Wars, The X-Files, and Dune. In his spare time, he also writes comic books. He lives in Wisconsin.
Jumping from the ships of Star Wars into the shadowy atmosphere of The X-Files is no leap of faith for Anderson, 32. He relishes the science fiction genre and has rocketed him to fame with 14 novels, including his best-selling anthology of short stories, Star Wars: Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina. Anderson and his co-writer, Doug Beason, won a nomination for the Nebula Award for best science-fiction novel with their work on Assemblers of Infinity. Another novel, Ignition, was recently sold to Universal Studios to be made into a major motion picture.
In Ground Zero, Mulder and Scully begin their investigation of unexplained murders at a nuclear research facility, set not far from Anderson's real-life home in Livermore, California, where he resides with his wife Rebecca Moesta and his 8-year-old stepson, Jonathan. It's also the site of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory where Anderson was employed as a technical writer/editor for 13 years.
Gillian Anderson, an award-winning actress on the New York stage, is best known for her starring role as Special Agent Dana Scully on the hit Fox television series The X-Files.
