Gateway Essentials: Elizabeth Scarborough

Elizabeth Ann Scarborough was born in Kansas City in 1947, and now lives in the Puget Sound area of Washington. She won a Nebula Award in 1989 for her novel The Healer’s War, and has written more than a dozen other novels. She has collaborated with Anne McCaffrey – best-known for creating the Dragonriders of Pern – to produce the Petaybee Series and the Acorna Series.

Where to start?  Well, a Nebula Award is usually a pretty good stamp of approval!
