Naomi Novik is the author of the Temeraire fantasy series and was the president of the Board of the OTW in its first few years. She was re-elected to the OTW board in November 2011[1], but resigned at the end of the 2012 term[2]. Previously, she also worked on the hit computer game Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide and helped start up Juno Online Services.

Novik has been active in online fandom since 1994, publishing stories and vids in more than forty-two fandoms and founding several fan-run institutions: a multiuser online role-playing game begun in 1995, a vidding convention begun in 2002, and an annual cross-fandom story exchange begun in 2003. She created the open-source Automated Archive software used by many fanfic archives.[3]

Although she prefers not to publicly, in a googlable way, link her fannish identity and real name, during the OTW 2011 Board Election, she agreed to it being okay within fandom during the election.[4]
