Kevin Lauderdale (born in Los Angeles, California) is a science fiction author primarily known for his Star Trek short stories, which began with publication in the Strange New Worlds anthology series. His stories appeared in three successive volumes of the series, making him eligible for a "Wardy," named for fellow Strange New Worlds veteran Dayton Ward.

In addition to his Star Trek work, he has published essays and articles in The Dictionary of American Biography (now known as The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives), the Los Angeles Times, Bride Again, Animato!, Pulse!, and McSweeney's Internet Tendency, as well as poetry in Andrei Codrescu's Exquisite Corpse. He is the primary book reviewer at Author

He was formerly the writer of "The Kevindex," a book review website, from 1996 to 2001. That site is now down, and only one piece of content is still available online in archived form: "An Annotated Guide to The Two Georges by Richard Dreyfuss and Harry Turtledove."

Lauderdale holds a bachelor's degree in English Literature from UCLA and a master's degree in the same field from San Francisco State University, as well as a Master of Library and Information Science degree (also from UCLA). He currently lives in northern Virginia with his wife, two daughters, and a dog.
