Jean Lorrah

WHERE SIME AND GEN MEET, CREATIVITY HAPPENS

The motto of the Sime~Gen universe fits Jean Lorrah's writing career, for her work is always on some sort of borderland. In childhood she lived a life of the imagination far more vivid than the gloomy steel town she grew up in, yet she also succeeded in school, ultimately growing up to become a high school teacher and later a university professor as she continued her life of the mind into creative writing.

Jean is the creator of the Savage Empire series and co-author of the Sime~Gen series created by Jacqueline Lichtenberg. Jean specializes in Intimate Adventure, stories in which people with opposing points of view must resolve the conflict by working together, usually with lives at stake. In real life, she frequently collaborates with other authors.

She is also a screenwriter, with an optioned screenplay, Coal for Christmas, written with Lois Wickstrom. Be sure to look for her Nessie's Grotto books with Lois, and folk tale favorite Rooster Under the Table. Besides all that, Jean has a one-off vampire novel, Blood Will Tell, and of course her four professional Star Trek novels.
