Born in 1959, Robert Anthony Salvatore was born in Massachusetts and resides there with his wife Diane, and their three children, Bryan, Geno, and Caitlin. They have one grandchild. The family pets include three Japanese Chins, Oliver, Artemis and Ivan, and four cats including Guenhwyvar.

Salvatore has written many novels set in the Forgotten Realms and is one of the fantasy genre’s most successful authors. His books regularly appear on The New York Times best-seller lists and have sold more than 10 million copies. Salvatore’s most recent original hardcover, The Two Swords, book three of The Hunter's Blades trilogy, debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal best-seller list and at #4 on The New York Times best-seller list. His books have been translated into numerous foreign languages including German, Italian, Finnish, Hebrew, Greek, Hungarian, Turkish, Croatian, Bulgarian, Yiddish, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Czech, and French.

His first published novel was The Crystal Shard in 1988, which introduced an enormously popular character: a drow named Drizzt Do'Urden.
