A new author reveals himself: Paul S. Kemp

On his Livejournal, Forgotten Realms author Paul S. Kemp has revealed that he too will be writing an upcoming (2010) Star Wars novel:

The novel, currently untitled, will be a standalone, occurs after the events of the Legacy of the Force series, and will feature a Jedi who has been mentioned by name only a handful of times in previous Star Wars novels, and who has (as far as I know) never been developed at all (I tried very hard to convince the Del Rey editors to allow me to use a previously unused character, and they were gracious in that regard; the story is also entirely of my own creation, so that’s pretty cool, too).

The plot thickens! (via)
