Jane Lindskold is an American author of more than 20 novels, most of which are in the science fiction and fantasy genres. One of her most popular series of novels is the Firekeeper saga that has six titles, she has also written an archeological fantasy adventure set in 19th century Egypt, and a modern day fantasy set in Las Vegas. Lindskold has also written the Breaking the Wall series of novels that have also become very popular among contemporary fantasy fiction enthusiasts. In addition to the novel series, she is the publisher of numerous works of fiction, including her article on Synge and Yeats, and a Roger Zelazny’s biography. She is also the author of over sixty short stories.

Jane Lindskold has collaborated with several writers in the fantasy/science fiction space, including Roger Zelazny, Fred Saberhagen, and David Weber. Such endeavors have seen Lindskold posthumously finish Zelazny’s novels, and write novels in Weber’s cult fiction setting of Honorverse. Lindskold ability to tell a good story has been praised by several of her contemporaries. Charles de Lint in his review of Changer asserted that Lindskold is one of the very few contemporary writers that can pull off telling an urban fast paced modern science fiction story while retaining the style and weight of traditional mythological story telling. De Lint went on to assert that Jane is one of those rare writers that just seems to become better with each new release.

Jane Lindskold was born the first of four siblings at the Columbia Hospital for Women in 1962. She spent most of her childhood in Chesapeake Bay, Washington D.C. With her father holding a demanding job in the United States Department of Justice, and her mother a practicing attorney, she was responsible for her fellow siblings from a very early age. These responsibilities meant that she felt a sense of isolation until her siblings grew old enough to play with her. Nonetheless, she asserts that given that none of her siblings is more than 5 years younger than her, they had a very strong sense of being part of a group. This explains why the lone wolf – mysterious orphans or orphans cannot be found in any of her works. Instead, most of her protagonists belong in structured families and packs, regardless of group dynamics. Having grown up with a grandfather that was governor of Ohio may also explain her expertise in writing about political intrigue and struggles of the human pack, as evidenced in the Firekeeper saga series of novels.

She attended Fordham a private Jesuit School in New York from where she graduated with a Ph.D. in English with a focus on Modern British Literature and Medieval Renaissance. She has always been a voracious reader, but it was not until she took a writing class at Fordham while doing her M.A., that she recognized that she had a gift for captivating a reading audience. She would later go on to teach at Fordham and Lynchburg College in Virginia. She met Roger Zelazny, one of the best science fiction writers of our time in 1994. Roger turned out to be one of the biggest influences in the career of the budding writer particularly with regard to style and themes of her work that bear a great resemblance to the works of the renowned fantasy writer.

Jane Lindskold currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico with her husband Jim Moore an archeologist. She asserts that she prefers the city to other New Mexico cities, as it has the multicultural, cosmopolitan feel of New York or D.C while still having the small community feel. When she is not writing, she loves to go to galleries and museums, or go hiking in the open spaces, that are just a few minutes drive from the city.

The first novel of the Firekeeper saga series that introduced Jane Lindskold to fantasy fiction audiences is the highly popular, Through the Wolf’s Eyes. The chief protagonist in the series is Firekeeper who has been living in the forest with her family – a pack of wolves. Used to living with royal wolves that are smarter, stronger, and bigger than normal wolves, the leader of the pack now wants her to go live with humans, in accordance with a promise made to her mother years earlier. The humans to whom she is being sent to, are convinced that she is the long lost heir to their kingdom. This could turn out to be a very advantageous thing or a very dangerous situation. Over the coming months, she will have to learn appropriate human behavior, which she finds out, is harder than she had imagined it would be. While Firekeeper comes to terms with human ways that are weirder than anything the forest had taught her, the constant political struggles among the human pack is nothing new to her. This novel is not the standard issue of pampered princess neither is it the archetypal fairy tale, but rather a well-written tale of political intrigue, with a dash of the mystical.

Wolf’s Head, Wolf’s Heart, the second novel in the Firekeeper Saga series is another very popular Jane Lindskold title. In the sequel to the first novel, young Firekeeper finds herself thrown back into human society, where she has to learn human mannerisms at Hawk Haven’s court. While Through the Wolf’s Eyes ended on a positive note with Bright Bay and Hawk Haven forming an alliance, the neighboring districts feel threatened by the unified force and plan to bring it down at the earliest opportunity. There are new complications and twists in the tale when it is established that the rulers of Bright Bay have in their possession, dark magical artifacts that Queen Gustin took with her upon her abdication. These are very powerful artifacts and could be a game changer in their quest for power. The older, more devious, and smarter Melina Shield seems to have the better chance of obtaining them and becoming queen. However, she can only achieve this if she manages to outwit the even stronger and more devious civil service of the New Kelvin district, which also craves the same power. Firekeeper will find that her life becomes even more complicated as she is right in the middle of the struggle for power; the powers that be have determined that she is the rightful heir of the magical artifacts.
