I was born in London, England and went to school there, but I
have lived in the United States since 1957. In the U.S., I first
lived in Bloomington, Indiana , where I did graduate work at
Indiana University in medieval literature and linguistics. I now
live in California.
I write science fiction, and I teach creative writing at
conferences around the world.
When I'm not writing or teaching, I like to travel, do Tai
Chi, hike in the local mountains, or go 4-wheeling in the
I have three daughters, eight grandchildren, Nicki the cat,
and two rescued Greyhounds.
I would love to hear from you.
