Short biography
From SFF.net: Jeanne Cavelos began her professional life as an astrophysicist and mathematician, teaching astronomy at Michigan State University and Cornell University, and working in the Astronaut Training Division at NASA's Johnson Space Center. After earning an MFA in creative writing, she moved into a career in publishing, becoming a senior editor at Bantam Doubleday Dell, where she created and launched the Abyss imprint of psychological horror. She also ran the science fiction/fantasy publishing program. In addition, she edited a wide range of fiction and nonfiction and gained a reputation for discovering and nurturing new writers. In 1994, she left New York to pursue her own writing career. Her first published book, "The Shadow Within," went out of print a few years ago but was recently reissued by Del Rey. Other works include a novella, "Negative Space," short fiction, essays, and reviews. Jeanne Cavelos also created and serves as director of Odyssey, an annual six-week summer writing workshop for writers of fantasy, science fiction, and horror held at St. Anselm College in Manchester, NH.
