I live in Toronto, Ontario and make my living writing science fiction and fantasy; I also review books and teach writing online at UCLA. I'm a legally married lesbian and in my spare time I take pictures with Toronto Photo. My wife's name is Kelly and we have two cats, Lorenzo and Chinchilla, born in spring of 2014.

Most of the Le Guin I've read was short stuff, like "A Matter of Seggri."

Other inspirations... ooh. Charles Darwin. Laurie King's early Mary Russell books. Narnia, Oz and other portal fantasies, of course. I love Connie Willis's writing. David Attenborough's various Life Of series inspired Sophie's career path. And, finally, various scientists of my acquaintance, who work on ecosystem challenges in the Pacific Northwest.(less)

We’re talking around two hundred stories and novel fragments, all of which I critiqued, too.

I loved it and re-read it until it was falling apart. This is the book that got me so interested in the social sciences, p..." Read more of this review »
What Makes This Book So Great by Jo Walton
