Two life-changing things happened to Chelsea Quinn Yarbro in 1968: she attended her first WorldCon and she sold her first story. Since then, she has attended many more conventions and published 81 works of short fiction in multiple genres and is presently working on her 95th sold book.

As well as science fiction, Yarbro writes mysteries, horror, non-fiction, westerns, young adult, and fantasy, most under her own name, but some under pseudonyms. By the time the 2018 WorldCon rolls around, she plans to be at work on her 100th sold book.
