I am an unrepentant science fiction novelist. Sometimes I mess around with other kinds of writing. I won an Arthur C. Clarke Award for a book that was published when I was 29, and I’ve been shortlisted for the same award on two other occasions since. My novels have also been shortlisted for the BSFA Award, the Tiptree Award, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award. I have translations in eight languages. I have to spell out all of these things because if I don’t, readers will say, ‘Tricia who?’ (This will probably happen anyway, but now it’s not my fault).
I grew up in New Jersey and live in the Shropshire hills in the UK with Steve Morris, our three children, and a cat called Whisper. I have a BA in Music from Bard College, an MA in Education from Columbia University, and a BSc(Hons) Open degree mainly in physics. I’m working on an MSc at the Astrophysics Research Institute in Liverpool.
