A graduate of the Clarion West Fiction Writers Workshop, Gardner has published science fiction short stories in a range of periodicals, including The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and Amazing Stories. In 1989, his short story “The Children of Crèche” was awarded the Grand Prize in the Writers of the Future contest.

He has written a number of novels in a “League of Peoples” universe in which murderers are defined as “dangerous non-sentients” and are killed if they try to leave their solar system by aliens who are so advanced that they think of humans like humans think of bacteria. This precludes the possibility of interstellar wars.

He has also explored themes of gender in his novels, including Commitment Hour in which people change sex every year, and Vigilant in which group marriages are traditional. Gardner is also an educator and technical writer. His book Learning UNIX is used as a textbook in some Canadian universities.

He lives in the Waterloo Ontario region, which he’s immortalizing (and destroying) in a new series of novels beginning with All Those Explosions Were Someone Else’s Fault.

Hart, Geoff [UPDATED 2020-07-10]

Startled by an aggressive dictionary during the 9th month of her pregnancy, Geoff’s mother was shortly delivered of a child who showed a precocious antipathy towards words. Over time, he transformed this antipathy into a more functional, if equally passive-aggressive, career as an editor. After more than 30 years of editing, the verbal flame still burns as brightly, leading to an errant, semi-evangelical career ranting against the evils of words from pulpits at any editing or technical writing conference that will have him, tirelessly seeking new recruits for his cause. In his spare time, he roams the globe, entertaining and enlightening locals with his creative and unrestrained interpretations of their linguistic conventions.

Hayward, Amber

Amber Hayward lives in rural northern Alberta where she writes novels, short stories and poems.

"Even before I started school, I knew I would be a writer. Reading was a great part of my life and I knew that writers were needed to create those intriguing books. I wrote stories, poems, plays, and achieved publication in student newspapers and yearbooks. My first big success was an essay read on Peter Gzowski’s Monringside radio show, followed by a story published in one of his anthologies. Publication of many of my poems and some short stories gave me the impetus to attempt a novel.” -- Amber Hayward.

Amber Hayward is an internationally published author and poet. Somehow she finds time to write despite the demands of managing the Black Cat Guest Ranch in the beautiful foothills of the Canadian Rockies, where she hosts and presents murder mystery weekends and flexes her fiction muscles with her Story 365 project: where she is writing a short story every day (for a year) and posting them on her website: amberhayward.ca.

Hubbard, Lee Danielle

“Well, to begin with, I could not really read until grade five. I continued on as an atrociously creative speller until well into middle-school. I always told stories in my head. I attempted my first novel in grade five, back when I spelled fire like ‘fyr’ half the time and could not master words like ‘they’. That one didn’t work so well. In grade eight I finished my first long piece. I have written one a year ever since, barring my nomad year in Australia.” — Lee Danielle Hubbard

Lee Danielle Hubbard was born in Victoria, BC, and still considers the Island her home. She lived in Victoria until the age of nineteen, before striking out for Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong, safe with her backpack and notebook for company. After a few more adventures around Canada, she has now returned to the Island to resume her studies in art history at the University of Victoria.

Danielle’s poetry has appeared in many literary magazines, including Event and the Claremont Review. She has jointly compiled several chapbooks, the most recent of which is entitled “We Have Osmosed”. Clan of the Dung-Sniffers is Danielle’s first novel.

She prefers to write early in the morning. After an hour’s run, swim, or bicycle adventure, dawn’s first light will find Danielle curled up on the couch with a pen in one hand and an apple in the other.

When Danielle is not writing, adventuring or eating she is most likely to be found at her easel, indulging in the joys of oil paints.

Huff, Tanya

Following three years in the Canadian Naval Reserve, a year studying forestry, a winter hanging around Universal studios, a degree in Radio and Television Arts, and time spent managing North America's oldest surviving SF&F bookstore (Bakka-Phoenix back when it was only Bakka), Tanya Huff moved to rural Ontario with her partner Fiona Patton and began writing science fiction and fantasy full-time—or as full-time as possible around the needs of nine cats and eighty acres of land. Her twenty-five books range from heroic fantasy (the Quarters books) through humour (the Keeper Chronicles) to military SF (the Torin Kerr Confederation series) and include Scholar of Decay a novel set in TSR's Ravenloft universe as well as four short story collections.>/P>

Her books have been translated into seven languages (eight if you include British English) and her five book Blood series, an urban fantasy/vampire/mystery mix which predated the current vampire craze by about fifteen years, was adapted into the 22 episode television series Blood Ties—a process she enjoyed every moment of. And not only because it was the first time in twenty-five years she actually got to use her degree. The three book Smoke series has now also been optioned for television so we'll see where that goes.

She tends to watch more action than drama—Supernatural, Castle, Bones, Fringe, NCIS—loves Guy Ritchie movies, and thought the Star Trek reboot rocked. Her tastes in books ranges across the board depending on mood at the time. When she's not writing, or gardening, or dealing with the cats, or watching TV, or reading, she practices the guitar and spends far too much time connecting with the world one hundred and forty characters at a time.

Jakober, Marie

Award winning author Marie Jakober graduated with honors from Ottawa’s Carleton University. She has written nine novels, including The Demon Left Behind, Even the Stones, The Mind Gods and Sandinista. Her novel The Black Chalice was awarded the Independent Publisher Book Award and Only Call Us Faithful received the Michael Shaara Award for Excellence in Civil War Fiction.

Marie was born and raised on an isolated homestead farm in northern Alberta. Few neighbors, no school; she took her first eight grades by correspondence. Books were scarce until she was fifteen or thereabouts, when she was able to take advantage of a 'borrowing by mail' library. "In such an environment, the life of the imagination takes on a central importance."

At age thirteen, Marie won an international competition based in India with a poem called The Fairy Queen. This attracted a great deal of attention and many rewards, including a scholarship which enabled her to attend university. Marie graduated from high school in Edmonton, and from university (Carleton) in Ottawa, with distinction. Since then she has held a variety of jobs but has always considered her real work to be writing.

All of her work is, in one way or another, about power. Who has it and why? Who doesn't have it and why? What happens to people and societies when power relationships become seriously unequal? How are power structures and power relationships created, how are they maintained, how are they changed? What ideas and myths form their foundations? What are the connections between power and religion? Power and sexuality? Power and ethics? Power and the use of violence?

Jakober's first book, The Mind Gods, set in 2350, explores what happens when the inhabitants of a small colony planet develop extraordinary psychic powers along with their severe, mind-centered religion. Sandinista and A People in Arms are contemporary novels dealing with the Nicaraguan revolution. Even The Stones examines the coming of patriarchy to an ancient realm of the Goddess. The Black Chalice, a man's belief in his own right to total power threatens the entire medieval world. And The Demon Left Behind is an urban fantasy.

Where do these ideas come from? "The gods, I presume. The Unknown. Chaos. Certainly no place to which I can draw a map. It feels as though I do not choose my stories; rather, they choose me. And when they decide they want to be written, they're very insistent about it."

"As a result I'm very disciplined when I have a work in progress. Get up early (sixish) and maybe an early morning walk. I almost always sit down with a pot of coffee and some appropriate music (medieval, American Civil War-whatever 'links' with the work in hand) and spend the first thirty or forty minutes just listening, letting the music create a mindspace and focus my concentration."

"Once a project is well underway, most of my available time goes toward it-daytime to writing, evenings to related reading and research. I still see my friends, but most everything else suffers."

When time allows, Marie is addicted to music, good ethnic food, challenging conversations, and yes, believe it or not, hockey.

Marie Jaober passed away March 26, 2017.

Jeffries, Sagan [UPDATED 2020-09-21]

Sagan Jeffries is the pen name of former world curling champ Ed Lukowich.

Ed wrote his futuristic fiction sci-fi novel 'The Trillionist' under pen name Sagan Jeffries in 2013. That novel formed the basis for his coming non-fiction Trillion Theory series.

Since then, Ed Lukowich has published 7 non-fiction books in his Trillion Theory series which can be viewed on his website www.trillionist.com. The books in Ed’s Trillion Theory series are available on Amazon, Chapters, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and city libraries.

As well, Ed has his own YouTube channel entitled 'Universe New Trillion Theory' with over 30 cosmic videos in his Trillion Theory series viewable through his channel. Ed’s Trillion Theory series focuses on the importance of Black Holes in building the spheres, solar system, and galaxies of our cosmos while setting the age and origin of our universe at a trillion years.

"I've been interested in science-fiction since I was a kid," said Lukowich, who lists Carl Sagan and Arthur C. Clarke among his favourite science-fiction authors. "Some 20 years ago, I began formulating Trillion Theory due to the Big Bang totally failing to properly explain our universe."
