She’s not quite sure how she got there, but it might have had something to do with the that father in Copenhagen she watched all those years ago who was playing with his bilingual sons….

She has been nominated for the Nebula, Sturgeon, and Tiptree awards, and the Italian translation of her novella Looking Through Lace won the Premio Italia for best international work. Her novel Flamme und Harfe (Flame and Harp) appeared in translation from Penhaligon, a German imprint of Random House, in January 2009.
