VJ Books Presents Author Ann Leckie!
Ann Leckie was born in 1966 in Toledo, Ohio, and grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. She has always enjoyed science fiction, and began writing in her youth, but her attempts at publication were largely unsuccessful. She attended Washington University and graduated in 1989 with a degree in Music.
Leckie has worked as a waitress, land surveyor, receptionist, and recording engineer. She became a stay-at-home mom, and, needing projects to keep herself occupied, began working on a novel. She attended the Clarion West Writers Workshop, and, over the course of 6 years, wrote Ancillary Justice, which was published in 2013. It won the Nebula Award, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the Hugo Award for best novel, and the BFSA Award. The two following books in the trilogy each won a Locus Award and a Nebula nomination.
Leckie has also published a multitude of short stories, served one year as the secretary of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and three years as editor of the online fantasy and science fiction magazine Giganotosaurus.
Leckie resides in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband and their two children.
