VJ Books Features Anne McCaffrey!

Author Stephenie MeyerAnne McCaffrey was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on April 1, 1926. McCaffrey graduated cum laude from Radcliffe College and is best known for her Dragonriders of Pern series.

Anne McCaffrey's first story was published by Sam Moskowitz in Science Fiction + Magazine and her first novel was published by Ballantine Books in 1967.

At the 2005 Nebula Award ceremonies, McCaffrey was named the 22nd Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America organization. In 2006 she was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.

Although she used to make appearances throughout the world as guest of honor at science fiction conventions, arthritis has now restricted such travel.

Anne ran a private livery stable and her horses have been successful in Horse Trials and showjumping. She did not ride in competition but has enjoyed the success of horse and rider and, until recently, rode out on her black and white mare, Pi.

McCaffrey passed away at age 85 on 21 November 2011 at her home in Ireland, following a stroke.
