Women in Writing

Calling All Nerds!

If you’re anything like me, you’re a hardcore science fiction nerd! We’re the ones who grew up with Star Trek on our television sets and Star Wars at the movies. We’ve read books about alien invasions, time travel, and robot takeovers. We had ray guns, or at least imagined we did, and fought the evil forces of the universe in our backyards. Some of the most inspiring books are hard to find these days. Most of them have been forgotten, left to collect dust. But you can find some of those jewels here!

Sophie is Awed by N.K. Jemisin

For Black History Month, I wanted to speak about and praise one of my favorite authors of all time--N. K. Jemisin. In 2016 she became the first black author to win a Hugo award for her book, The Fifth Season--a book I consider a masterpiece. She then repeated that the following year with The Obelisk Gate. She’s brave, bold and outspoken when it comes to issues of race. You will never see her back down. And for this, I admire her greatly.
