Author Info
L.E. Modesitt
Born in 1943 as Leland Exter, L. E. Modesitt studied poetry at Williams College in Massachusetts, graduating with a B.A. in 1965. He joined the navy as a pilot that same year, eventually attaining the rank of lieutenant before leaving in 1969. He began graduate studies at the University of Denver in 1970, but left for the world of politics, working on the campaign trail. His first story was published in 1973, the same year that he became a legislative assistant first for U.S. Congressman Bill Armstrong and then for Ken Kramer. Modesitt married Christina Gribben in 1977, and the couple eventually had eight children. Briefly, he held a position at Georgetown University as a lecturer, but in 1981, he went to work for the Environmental Protection Agency. Modesitt's first novel, THE FIRES OF PARATIME, was published in 1982. He has since published a number of series and stand-alone novels, including the highly regarded Recluse series. In 1989, Modesitt left Washington, D.C., where he had lived since starting at the E.P.A., and met a lyric soprano whom he married (he and his first wife were divorced several years earlier). Modesitt's 1994 novel OF TANGIBLE GHOSTS, alludes to something of a fictionalized version of the couple's romance in the context of its larger concerns. That novel's sequel, THE GHOST OF THE REVELATOR, follows the heroes--a professor and his singer wife--as they visit Utah, a permanent move that the Modesitts made themselves in 1993.
