Since 1997, Julie E. Czerneda has turned her love and knowledge of biology into science fiction novels and short stories that have received international acclaim, multiple awards, and best-selling status.

A popular speaker on scientific literacy and SF, in 2009 Julie was Guest of Honour for the national conventions of New Zealand and Australia, as well as Master of Ceremonies for Anticipation, the Montreal Worldcon.

She’s busy writing short stories as well as her next novel, having released her first really big fantasy, A Turn of Light, (from DAW Books 2013).

Most recently, Julie was guest speaker at McMaster University’s conference: SF The Interdisciplinary Genre.
