After graduating from the University of Oklahoma-Norman in 1964 with a B. A. in Latin and from Johns Hopkins University in 1966 with an M. A. in classics, Carolyn Janice Cherry taught Latin and ancient history in the Oklahoma public school system for 11 years, until 1976. She began writing while still a teacher, her first story was published in 1968. Soon afterwards, at the suggestion of publisher Donald Wollheim, founder of D.A.W. books, she adopted the name C. J. Cherryh. She has since written more than 50 short stories as well as more than 50 novels, both as stand-alones and as parts of over 10 different series. She has won three Hugo Awards--one for her story "Cassandra", in 1979, and one each for the novels DOWNBELOW STATION, in 1982, and CYTEEN, in 1988--and been nominated more than 40 (!) times in the influential Locus Poll, which is based on ballots submitted by Locus magazine's readers, who are comprised of professional writers, fans, and industry personnel.
"Complex and rich, with beautifully rounded characters, this novel can stand alone, but will delight fans of CYTEEN with extra layers of meaning that resonate between old and new." (Starred review.) 11/17/2008
