Personal Quote:

I'm...comfortably asocial -- a hermit in the middle of Seattle -- a pessimist if I'm not careful, a feminist, a Black [person], a former Baptist, an oil-and-water combination of ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, and drive.

Trivia:

In 1995, she became the first science-fiction writer to be awarded the MacArthur Foundation "genius" grant, which paid her US$295,000 over a 5-year period. The award is given annually to people who challenge and expand the boundaries of their chosen fields. See more »
