Lois McMaster Bujold was born in 1949, the daughter of an engineering professor at Ohio State University, from whom she picked up her early interest in science fiction. She now lives in Minneapolis, and has two grown children. She began writing with the aim of professional publication in 1982. She wrote three novels in three years; in October of 1985, all three sold to Baen Books, launching her career. Bujold went on to write many other books for Baen, mostly featuring her popular character Miles Naismith Vorkosigan, his family, friends, and enemies.

"A breathtaking book."

Shadows in Scarlet (2001)
Lillian Stewart Carl
"Shadows in Scarlet is a richly-written book, an appealing feast for both the intellect and the senses. The characters are immensely lively and vivid - even the ghostly ones! I'm already amusing myself trying to cast the movie."
