VONDA NEEL MCINTYRE


Vonda McIntyre (U.S.A., 8/28/1948- )

Vonda was born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1948. She took a degree in biology at the University of Washington and did post-graduate work in genetics. She has also done some editing and organised writers' workshops. Her first novel was The Exile Waiting.

Vonda is the author of Dreamsnake, which won both the Nebula Award and the Hugo award for best science fiction novel. The World Science Fiction Convention awards the Hugo after a vote by readers, while the Science-Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America presents the Nebula. Dreamsnake has been published in thirteen languages, including, most recently, Czechoslovakian.

In 1994, The Chesterfield Film Company offered her a fellowship in its Writers Film Project, sponsored by Universal Studios and Amblin Entertainment. She spent the year in Los Angeles working on two screenplays. The results are The Moon and the Sun and Illegal Alien. She has also adapted Dreamsnake and Barbary as movie screenplays.
