About the Author
Mary Soon Lee grew up in London, but now lives in Pittsburgh, where she runs a writers' group called the Pittsburgh Worldwrights. She has had over fifty stories published, including "Lifework" in David Hartwell's anthology The Year's Best SF#5, "The Day Before They Came" in The Year's Best #4, and stories in Aboriginal Science Fiction, The Age of Wonders, Dark Regions Magazine, Amazing Stories, Between the Darkness and the Fire, Fantasy & Science Fiction, Interzone, On Spec, Pirate Writings, and Sword & Sorceress XIV. Her first poem was published in November 2000 in the Pittsburg Post-Gazette, and her fiction has appeared in ten countries and seven languages.
She is married with one son, William Chye Lee-Moore, born in April 1999, who is exceedingly cute. Her father was ethnically Chinese, grew up in Malaysia, and met her Irish mother in Dublin.
She has an M.A. in mathematics and a diploma in computer science from Cambridge University, and an M.Sc. in astronautics and space engineering from Cranfield University. Before the birth of her son, Mary worked as a consultant to an artificial intelligence company. Now she splits her time between writing and looking after William.
