Short biography
Jo Walton has published nine novels and three poetry collections, with another novel and an essay collection due out in 2014. She won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 2002, the World Fantasy Award in 2004 for Tooth and Claw, and the Hugo and Nebula awards in 2012 for Among Others. She comes from Wales but lives in Montreal where the food and books are much better. She writes science fiction and fantasy, reads a lot, talks about books, and eats great food. It worries her slightly that this is exactly what she always wanted to do when she grew up.
