The Pacific Northwest is an incubator for top-notch Science Fiction Writers. Witness, if you will, Daniel H. Wilson, the New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse, soon to be a motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg. Daniel will be joined by fellow writers Isaac Marion and Rhiannon Held.
Daniel H. Wilson is the New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse and seven other books, including How to Survive a Robot Uprising and A Boy and His Bot. He earned a PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University, as well as Masters degrees in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. In 2008, Daniel hosted The Works which aired on the History Channel. The movie adaptation of his novel Robopocalypse will be directed by Steven Spielberg, and is scheduled for release on April 25th, 2014. Daniel's next novel, Amped, was released by Doubleday in June, 2012.
Isaac Marion was born in north-western Washington in 1981 and has lived in and around Seattle his whole life, working a variety of strange jobs like delivering deathbeds to hospice patients and supervising parental visits for foster-kids. He is not married, has no children, and did not go to college or win any prizes. Warm Bodies is his first novel.
Rhiannon Heldís novel SILVER, the first book in her urban fantasy series from Tor, will be out in June 2012. In her day job she works as a professional archaeologist. Unfortunately, given that itís real rather than fictional archaeology, fedoras, bullwhips, aliens, and dinosaurs are in short supply. Most of her work is done on the computer, using databases to organize data, and graphics programs to illustrate it.
