Death: Definitely not yet.
Comments: Aliette de Bodard is a science fiction writer of French and Vietnamese extraction who was born in the U.S. but raised in France. Her native language is French, but she writes science fiction mostly in English, which is quite impressive. In a field dominated by the Anglo-American viewpoint, her stories are a refreshing, and much needed alternative to the usual fare. She has published three novels and several dozen works of short fiction and has been nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, the Nebula award twice, and the Hugo Award once. She has also won the Writers of the Future competition. In addition to writing, she has a day job as a software engineer.
She has a website named Aliette de Bodard: Writer of Fantasy and Science Fiction. You can also follow her on Twitter and like her Facebook fan page.
