Sally Jane Driscoll didn't want to learn to read. She loathed school and preferred running around outside like a free barbarian.
In third grade she wrote her first story and handed it in a day late. The teacher rejected it, preparing Sally for the writer's life. But writing gave Sally freedom. Stories came from somewhere! And she could make them. Over time her stories appeared in various magazines, including Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Asimov's Science Fiction, Interzone and Daily Science Fiction.
Born on Manhattan, Sally grew up on Long Island and then lived in Peekskill, Baltimore and San Jose. She finally settled in the Texas Hill Country, where deer roam the yards, the people are smart, cranky and self-sufficient, and the sky is more real than her cell phone.
