K. D. Wentworth (1951-2012) authored several novels, including Black on Black
and Stars Over Stars for Baen, and more than fifty short stories, which
appeared in such magazines as Fantasy & Science Fiction, Hitchcock's Mystery
Magazine, Realms of Fantasy, and others. She was a winner in the
Writers of Future contest, and was been a Nebula Award finalist twice. She attributed her success to having a very large dog and a
wonderful husband, not necessarily in that order.
