(1954- ) UK-born author, now in the US. Both of her novels are sharp Feminist parables. Altogether Elsewhere (1985) depicts a Near-Future feminist vigilante backlash against male violence. Hatching Stones (1991) portrays a society in which males largely abandon females when Genetic Engineering allows them to Clone "sons", although a modified form of the family survives in a quasi-Utopian society where all the adults are female.
