Carmen Webster Buxton spent her youth reading every book published by Ursula LeGuin, Robert Heinlein and Georgette Heyer. This combination of far-future worlds, alien cultures, and old-fashioned courting customs influenced her writing, especially in her ThreeCon series.
Carmen was born in Honolulu and experienced a childhood on the move, as her father was in the US Navy. Having raised two wonderful children, she now lives in Maryland with her husband Charlie, a beagle named Cosmo, and a yellow cat with the unlikely name of Carbomb. She writes science fiction and romance, mostly set in the far future, and the occasional fantasy.
She has published several books, including THE SIXTH DISCIPLINE and its sequel NO SAFE HAVEN. TRIBES, SHADES OF EMPIRE, and THE NOSTALGIA GAMBIT are in her ThreeCon series; these books are set in a shared universe but do not share any characters. WHERE MAGIC RULES (a novella) is her only published fantasy. KING OF TREES crosses genres, as it is a time travel/alternate history/science fiction novel with fantasy overtones. SARONNA'S GIFT is her first book to be available as a paperback as well as an ebook, and the first overt romance.
Carmen often blogs about ereaders, digital publishing, writing, and speculative fiction. Visit her blog to see what's coming out next! To send her feedback on her books, send email to carmen.webster.buxton (at) gmail.com.
