Dayton Ward

Dayton Ward is the New York Times bestselling author or co-author of nearly thirty novels and novellas, often working with his best friend, Kevin Dilmore. With Kevin and fellow author David Mack, he helped to develop Star Trek: Seekers, the forthcoming "literary spin-off" to the critically acclaimed Star Trek Vanguard novel series.

His short fiction has appeared in more than twenty anthologies, and he's written for magazines such as Kansas City Voices, Star Trek and Star Trek Communicator, as well as the websites,, and

In 2013, Dayton created Adventures of Space Marshal Dylan McCade, an homage to old fashioned sci-fi serials. That same year, the first story, "The Terror of Entropia's Ice Cannon," was adapted for full-cast audio presentation and released by SciFi Commons. In early 2014, the serial won two Audio Verse Awards, and a second story is currently in development.

Dayton's most recent novels are Peaceable Kingdoms, the final novel in the bestselling miniseries Star Trek: The Fall, and Point of Divergence, the second Star Trek: Seekers novel, which will be released later this year. Other upcoming publications include an essay in the anthology New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics, and a new novel featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Though he currently lives in Kansas City with his wife and two daughters, Dayton is a Florida native and still maintains a torrid long-distance romance with his beloved Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Visit him on the web at
