Celia Friedman was born on January 12, 1957 in the family of Nancy and Herbert Friedman. She has a younger brother, by the way, also a writer. Like many authors, from early childhood she loved to read books. At the age of 10, she read Isaac Asimov`s collection "Earth is Room Enough" and discovered the world of science fiction. Celia teaches Costume Design at a private university in northern Virginia. She is also a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, designing clothes for theatrical historical performances. For a long time Friedman was engaged in fencing, both modern (she was a member of the university team) and historical (she is a member of “The League of Renaissance Swordsmen”), and still puts episodes of fights in theaters. "In Conquest Born" (1986) is the writer`s debut novel. Until now, it is considered one of the best works of Celia Friedman. In 1990 her second book was published - "The Madness Season" (1990). This is an sci-fi novel about the events taking place three hundred years after the aliens conquered the Earth. Then came the "nf-fantasy" trilogy "The Coldfire Trilogy", which takes place on a planet colonized by people, where magic works. It consists of the novels “Black Sun Rising” (1991), “When True Night Falls” (1993) and “Crown of Shadows” (1995; nominated for “Locus” -1996 (11th place)). This was followed by the off-cycle science fiction novel This Alien Shore (1998), in which mutated earthlings-colonists form a new race that controls all interstellar trade. Friedman went on to write “The Erciyes Fragments” (1999), one of the “soursebooks” of the popular role-playing game “Vampire: The Masquerade” (by “White Wolf”). In 2004, the most recent novel by the writer, "The Wilding", was released. Its action takes place in the universe of "In Conquest Born", but after a huge amount of time, when the heroes of the previous novel have long been dead and forgotten. Friedman plans to begin work on a new fantasy trilogy, “with a new approach to magic, so dark that it will appear to you in nightmares.” Friedman`s books were published not only in the USA, but also in England, translated into German, Italian, Dutch, Polish and Russian languages.
