Entry updated 11 May 2020. Tagged: Author.

(1970-    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Valkyrie" in Sword and Sorceress XVII (anth 2000) edited by Marion Zimmer Bradley; many of her best stories were assembled as Tales of the Chinese Zodiac (coll of linked stories 2006 ebook); Jade Tiger (2006) is a martial arts fantasy. Of sf interest is the Young Adult Above World sequence beginning with Above World (2012), set many years after Overpopulation has induced large numbers of Genetically Engineered humans to establish cultures Under the Sea; as the young protagonists (one of them a mermaid) discover, the planet itself, teeming with adapted humans, is in a state of crisis induced by the power lust of a Mad Scientist with an army of Cyborg soldiers. War is seen as despicable. The four companions defeat the scientist. [JC]
