Eric Van Lustbader was born and raised in Greenwich Village. He is a graduate of Columbia College, with a degree in Sociology. Before turning to writing full time, he enjoyed highly successful careers in the New York City public school system where he holds licenses in both elementary and early childhood education, and in the music business where he worked for Elektra Records and CBS Records among other companies.

He was the first writer in the US to write about Elton John and to predict his success. As a consequence, he, Elton and Elton's lyricist Bernie Taupin became friends. Writing for Cash Box Magazine, he also predicted the successes of such bands as Santana, Roxy Music, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, David Bowie, and The Who, among others.

Eric Van Lustbader's first novel, The Sunset Warrior, was published in 1977. Since then, he has published more than twenty-five best-selling novels, including The Ninja in which he introduced Nicholas Linnear, one of modern fiction's most beloved and enduring heroes, continuing his exploits in five subsequent best-sellers.

His novels have been translated into over twenty languages; his books are bestsellers worldwide and are so popular whole sections of bookstores from Bangkok to Dublin are devoted to them. He is also the author of two successful and highly regarded series of fantasy novels, The Sunset Warrior Cycle and The Pearl Saga.

He is the author of a number of short stories, screenplays and novellas. A highly successful short novel, Art Kills, was published in 2000. That same year he was asked by DC Comics to write a graphic novel. Lustbader chose to write about his favorite childhood comic character, Batman. The result was Batman: The Dark Angel, which was the only graphic novel to be chosen as a Monthly Choice of the Quality Paperback Book Club.

In 2003, he was asked by Estate of the late Robert Ludlum to continue the series based on Jason Bourne. The Bourne Legacy, published in 2004 continues and updates the adventures of Robert Ludlum’s famous international assassin.

Lustbader has gone on to write five more Bourne novels, The Bourne Betrayal, The Bourne Sanction, The Bourne Deception, The Bourne Objective, The Bourne Dominion (July, 2011).

In 2008, Lustbader wrote First Daughter to wide acclaim. The novel features Jack McClure and Alli Carson, Mr. Lustbader's first continuing characters since Nicholas Linnear and Jake Maroc. The second novel in the series, Last Snow, was published in January, 2010. The third novel in the series, Blood Trust, is published in May, 2011.

Sunset Warrior Cycle was the first series of articles Eric Van Lustbader wrote. The series started with Sunset Warrior in 1977 and the other 4 books followed from the same cycle: Sunset Warrior in 1977, Shallows of Night in 1978, Dai-San in 1978, Beneath an Opal Moon in 1980, Dragons on the Sea of Night in 1997.

"Beneath the surface of the planet lies the Freehold, a society based on military tradition and deadening caste lore - a society whose time is running out. For the great life- support machines of their ancestors are failing and the Freeholders no longer have the technical skill to hold back the inevitable tide of decay.

In a community without hope there is still one man whose spirit is not crushed. A swordsman trained to a pitch of magic perfection by the mysterious mystic, the Salamander; a rebel loathed by the ruling War Lords yet beloved by the majestically beautiful K'reen; he is the bladesman Ronin.

Ronin is compelled to escape the Freehold and seek a path to the world above. But first he must journey deep into the bowels of the earth to a crumbling, deserted city now haunted bt terrifying aliens, the Makkon. Yet they are merely harbingers for an awesome, appocalyptic power - the Dolman, a dark lord whose coming will plunge a twilight world into everlasting night..."
