Despite the fact the Lois McMaster Bujold is the winner of multiple Hugo awards, many science fiction readers have never heard of her. During her career, she has won four Hugo awards in the Novel category, more than any other writer, except Robert A Heinlein. She also has been on the Locus Recommended Reading List.
Lois was born in Columbus, Ohio, in 1949. In late 1984, she made her first professional sale to Twilight Zone Magazine. Her first three novels were bought by Baen Books in October 1985 and in 1987-88, Analog Magazine serialized her fourth novel, Falling Free, which went on to win her first Nebula Award. "The Mountains of Mourning," which also appeared in Analog, won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards for best novella of 1989. The Vor Game and Barrayar won Hugos for best novel in 1991 and 1992. In 1995, Mirror Dance won the Hugo and Locus awards.
