AUTHOR

Brenda W. Clough

Brenda W. Clough spent much of her childhood overseas, courtesy of the U.S. government. She has lived in Laos, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and Germany. She returned to Pittsburgh, PA to earn a degree in English/Creative Writing at Carnegie Mellon University in 1977.

Several years working as a meek mild-mannered reporter for a major metropolitan newsletter enabled her to write a fantasy novel, THE CRYSTAL CROWN (1984). She has also written THE DRAGON OF MISHBIL (1985), THE REALM BENEATH (1986), and THE NAME OF THE SUN (1988) Her children's novel, AN IMPOSSUMBLE SUMMER (1992) is set in her own house in Virginia, where she lives in a cottage at the edge of a forest.

A number of short stories have appeared in anthologies, the most recent being HOME IS THE SAILOR in the anthology STARLIGHT 3 (Tor 2001), and HOW TO SAVE THE WORLD (Tor 1996, Charles Sheffield, ed.). She also had a novella MAY BE SOME TIME in the 2001 issue of ANALOG, which was on the final ballot for both the Hugo and the Nebula Awards. Her short story titled TIMES FIFTY, in the October 2001 issue of CHRISTIANITY TODAY, won a Higher Goals in Christian Journalism award from the Evangelical Press Association.

Her novels HOW LIKE A GOD and the sequel DOORS OF DEATH AND LIFE were published by Tor Books in 1997. In its review Locus Magazine says, "Clough brings myth and science and plain human existence (complex as all get-out) together for what proves to be a fine blend, and a very good read, offering physical, psychological, and metaphysical insights into the human condition, along with the sometimes delightfully outlandish action that drives the best of pulp fiction."

And the New York Times Book Review says, "Ms. Clough has an appealingly cheeky imagination."

Her newest novel, REVISE, was published on line at Book View Café (www.bookviewcafe.com) in 2009.
