Lois McMaster Bujold Lois McMaster Bujold was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1949. From 1968 to 1972 she studied at Ohio State University, but never received her diploma. During my studies at the university I read a lot, including science fiction. Since 1969 she has been actively involved in the life of the fandom. She married in 1971 to John Fredrick Bujold, whom she divorced in 1995. She has two children - son Paul and daughter Anna. She began writing science fiction in 1982, and published her first story in the Twilight Zone magazine in 1985. In 1986, she published three debut novels - Shards of Honor, The Warrior`s Apprentice and Ethan of Athos, which opened a series of books about Miles Vorkosigan and the planet Barrayar. At the moment, there are already thirteen novels in this cycle. In 1987, the writer was nominated for the John Campbell Prize. In 1988, her novel In Free Fall won the Nebula Prize. The Vor Game, Barrayar, and Dance of Reflections won the Hugo Prize, The Paladin of Souls won the Hugo and Nebula Prizes, and The Mountains of Sorrow (from The Boundaries of Infinity) in 1989 year also won both awards at once - "Nebula" and "Hugo". In 1993, the writer tried her hand at the fantasy genre, having published the novel "Rings of Spirits". She continues to write - both individual novels and sequels to books about Miles. Here is what Lois M. Bujold says about himself: “I have been an insatiable reader all my life, starting from my childhood, when I read stories about horses in school. I started reading children`s science fiction at the age of nine, inheriting a passion for it from my father. He is a professor of engineering and often bought all sorts of fantastic magazines and things like that. The circle of my interests later expanded to such things as history, secrets, travel, wars, poetry and so on. … I made my earliest attempts to write at school. In eighth grade, I tried to imitate my favorite writers - for my own pleasure, of course, and not as an additional school activity. My best friend Lillian Stewart and I have come up with different stories together. Only fragments, episodes - nothing finished. The most significant event for me in those years was a trip across Europe - hitchhiking, together with my older brother. I was 15 then. I chose English as my main occupation in college, but quickly put it out of my head - my heart was always more drawn to creating new things, rather than critically reviewing things already written by someone. My interest in wildlife and an intimate acquaintance with the art of photography led me on a six-week biological education tour of East Africa. ... After college, I worked as a pharmacist at a university hospital - before starting a family. … I quickly realized that writing is very demanding. It drains to the bottom, and I needed the approval of serious professional writers. To achieve this, it was necessary to write and rewrite, cut out the episodes, listen to the editors` comments and try again. It was a very busy period for me when I was growing up as a writer, but from the outside it was invisible.
