Nancy Kress

By Liza Trombi

Nancy Kress had never planned on becoming a writer, but staying at home full-time with infants left her time to experiment. Her first novel, "The Prince of Morning Bells," appeared in 1981 from Pocket Books. Although she began by writing fantasy, Nancy currently writes science fiction, often about genetic engineering. She teaches regularly at summer conferences such as Clarion West and Taos Toolbox. For 16 years, she was the fiction columnist for Writer’s Digest magazine, and has written three books about writing.

She is the author of 27 novels, three books on writing, four short story collections, and over a hundred works of short fiction. Her fiction has won six Nebulas, two Hugos for “Beggars in Spain” and “The Erdmann Nexus," a Sturgeon for “The Flowers of Aulit Prison” and a John W. Campbell Memorial Award for the novel "Probability Space." Her work has been translated into Swedish, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Polish, Croatian, Korean, Lithuanian, Chinese, Romanian, Japanese, Russian, and Klingon, none of which she can read.

Her most recent novel, released just last week, is "If Tomorrow Comes," the sequel to "Tomorrow's Kin." Both feature a group of scientists, human and alien, trying to work together to defeat threats to two planets, including danger from each other.
