Author Info
Elizabeth Moon
Susan Elizabeth Norris Moon was born during World War II to a divorced mother who was an aeronautical engineer. Moon began writing, according to her mother, as soon as she could hold a pencil. On her website, Moon says that one of her earliest complete works was a musical comedy, with music and lyrics, written when she was 10--apparently it was quite bad. She began reading science fiction in junior high school, and writing it shortly afterwards. Moon received a B.A. in history from Rice University in 1968 and then joined the Marines later that year. She served in the Marines for three years, during the Vietnam War, mostly working with computers. In 1969 she married Richard Moon. After leaving the Marines, she worked a number of different jobs--including as a paramedic and as a city alderman, a post she held for four years--while also working toward another degree. In 1975 she received a B.A. in biology from the University of Texas at Austin, subsequently doing graduate work in biology at the University of Texas at San Antonio. 1986 saw the publication of Moon's first fiction, three short stories. In 1988 her first novel, SHEEPFARMER'S DAUGHTER, appeared. It was the first part of a trilogy--eventually compiled in one volume as THE DEED OF PAKSENARRION--about the adventures of a female soldier, much of the detail of which had been drawn from Moon's own military experience. After this series, she co-authored a pair of books with Anne McCaffrey, before starting a duology called The Legacy of Gird, a sequel to the Paksenarrion books. Moon's later novels have also been parts of several different series, while she has also published LUNAR ACTIVITY and PHASES, both short-story collections.
