Meet Our Readers: Jody Lynn Nye

            

            Jody Lynn Nye lists her main career activity as 'spoiling cats.' When not engaged upon this worthy occupation, she writes fantasy and science fiction books and short stories.

            Before breaking away from gainful employment to write full time, Jody worked as a file clerk, book-keeper at a small publishing house, freelance journalist and photographer, accounting assistant and costume maker.

            Since 1987 she has published 43 books and more than 100 short stories. Among the novels Jody has written are her epic fantasy series, The Dreamland, beginning with Waking In Dreamland, five contemporary humorous fantasies, and three medical science fiction novels.  Strong Arm Tactics, a humorous military science fiction novel, is the first of Jody's new series, The Wolfe Pack.

            She has also collaborated with Anne McCaffrey on four science fiction novels and co-authored the Visual Guide to Xanth with best-selling fantasy author Piers Anthony.

Her newest books are Dragons Deal (Ace Books), third in the Dragons series begun by Robert Asprin, and View From the Imperium (Baen Books), a humorous military SF novel. Coming soon is Myth-Quoted, the next Myth-Adventures novel.

            Over the last twenty or so years, Jody has taught in numerous writing workshops and participated on hundreds of panels covering the subjects of writing and publishing at science-fiction conventions. She has also spoken in schools and libraries around the north and northwest suburbs. In 2007 she taught fantasy writing at Columbia College Chicago.

            Jody lives in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, with her husband Bill Fawcett, a writer, game designer and book packager, and a black cat, Jeremy.
