Nancy Kress is the author of 36 books, including 25 novels, four full-size and three mini- collections of short stories, and three books about writing. Her work has won five Nebulas, two Hugos, a Sturgeon, and a John W. Campbell Memorial award (for PROBABILITY SPACE). The novels include science fiction, fantasy, and thrillers. Her most recent work is the Nebula-winning and Hugo-nominated AFTER THE FALL, BEFORE THE FALL, DURING THE FALL, a short novel about ecological disaster, time travel, and human resiliency. Much of Nancy's science fiction concerns genetic engineering, which she sees as humanity's future. She often teaches writing during summer workshops, notably Taos Toolbox in New Mexico. Nancy lives in Seattle with her husband, writer Jack Skillingstead, and Cosette, the world's most spoiled toy poodle.
