Jo Walton writes science fiction and fantasy novels and reads a lot and eats great food. It worries her slightly that this is so exactly what she always wanted to do when she grew up. She comes from Wales, but lives in Montreal.

“It doesn't matter. I have books, new books, and I can bear anything as long as there are books.”
Jo Walton, Among Others

“Libraries really are wonderful. They're better than bookshops, even. I mean bookshops make a profit on selling you books, but libraries just sit there lending you books quietly out of the goodness of their hearts.”
Jo Walton, Among Others

“If you love books enough, books will love you back.”
Jo Walton, Among Others
