She has published six novels and numerous short stories. Her first novel, Brown Girl in the Ring, won the Warner Aspect First Novel contest. She has also received the Campbell and Locus Awards, the World Fantasy Award, and the Sunburst Award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic. She currently lives in California, USA, where she is a professor of Creative Writing and a member of a faculty research cluster in science fiction. In 2018, she was awarded Eagle-Con’s Octavia E.

We are moving our Summer of Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Series to the virtual world. During the summer, we will host an event each week on Tuesday evenings at 6 p.m.

Readings include selections from recently published books, unpublished stories, or novels-in-progress. The featured reader also answers questions about writing, teaching, editing, and other topics.
