About Author
Born Nancy Anne Koningisor. She grew up in East Aurora, New York, a sleepy upstate town given to cows and apples, where she spent most of her childhood either reading or playing in the woods. She went to college at State University of New York at Plattsburgh, earning a degree in elementary education, which she put to use for the next four years teaching the fourth grade.

In 1973 she left teaching and moved to Rochester to marry Michael Joseph Kress, an insurance agent. They had two sons, Kevin Michael Kress and Brian Stephen Kress, and divorced in 1984.

In 1998, Nancy married fellow SF writer Charles Sheffield. He died in 2002 of brain cancer, and Nancy has moved back to Rochester, New York, to be near her grown children and oldest friends.

She has won two Nebulas and a Hugo, and lost over a dozen more of these awards.
