Two of her Star Trek novels ... Yesterday's Son and Time for Yesterday ... were direct sequels to the third season episode "All Our Yesterdays", and detail Spock and Zarabeth's son. Yesterday's Son was the first non-novelization Star Trek novel to appear on the New York Times Best Seller list. Her later Star Trek works included the novel Sarek, which takes place after The Undiscovered Country.
Her best-known Star Wars work is The Han Solo Trilogy, which chronicles the life of Han Solo prior to A New Hope. Her first Star Wars works, however, were two short stories that she wrote for Kevin J. Anderson's Tales From the Mos Eisley Cantina and Tales from Jabba's Palace anthologies. She also contributed a story, written with occasional collaborator Kathleen O'Malley, to Richard Dean Starr's Tales of Zorro anthology.
Crispin also served as Eastern Regional Director, and then Vice President, of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. With Victoria Strauss, she founded Writer Beware, a "watchdog" group that is part of SFWA that warns aspiring writers about the dangers of scam agents, editors, and publishers. Writer Beware was founded in 1998, and has assisted law enforcement and civil authorities in tracking and shutting down writing scams.
Crispin wrote the novelizations for The V miniseries and the film Alien Resurrection, as well as Sylvester, a girl and horse film starring Melissa Gilbert.
In spring of 2010, Crispin recently completed a major novel that will receive a "gala unveiling" in late Fall 2010. This novel is scheduled for a May 2011 release, and will be a hardcover. For updates, see www.accrispin.com.
