portraitElizabeth Moon grew up on the Texas-Mexico border. She has degrees in history and biology, and programmed computers while in the Marine Corps. She began writing stories in childhood, but didn't make a fiction sale until she was forty. She has seventeen books in print, including The Speed of Dark. She and her husband live in Central Texas; their son, in his early twenties, is autistic.

She loves the outdoors, rides horses, sings in a choir, and would rather do anything than clean house.
