About the Author
Born in Philadelphia in 1947, Stephen Goldin has lived in California since 1960. He received a Bachelor's degree in Astronomy from UCLA and worked as a civilian space scientist for the U.S. Navy for a few years after leaving college, but has made his living as a writer/editor most of his life. His first wife was fellow author Kathleen Sky, with whom he co-wrote the first edition of the highly acclaimed nonfiction book The Business of Being a Writer. His current wife is fellow author Mary Mason. So far they have co-authored two books in the Rehumanization of Jade Darcy series. He served the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America for close to three years as editor of the SFWA Bulletin, and another three years as the organization's Western Regional Director. He has lived with cats all his adult life. Philosophically, he is an atheist. Artistically, he enjoys Broadway musicals and surrealist art. Learn more about him at his Web site, http://stephengoldin.com. Many of his books can be bought through his online bookstore, Parsina Press, at http://parsina.com. MARY MASON was born in Bakersfield and has lived in California all her life. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from CSU Sacramento, and has worked counseling abused children. Her first husband was a member of “Hell Bent For Glory,” a pre-Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang, but she made the bikers check their weapons at the door and wash her dishes, in exchange for her fine cooking. Her philosophy regarding martial arts is, “My black belt beats your black belt, because my black belt’s in Smith & Wesson.” She is also a sound lady, mixing live music for bands—usually Chicago blues and S.F. rock, but also swing, folk, and both Country and Western. She has run several Nebula Award banquets for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, as well as science fiction conventions, and founded the 1993 San Francisco WorldCon bid. In 2012 she co-authored Throwing Lead: A Writer's Guide to Firearms (and the People Who Use Them) with J. Daniel Sawyer.
