GUESTS OF HONOR
We are pleased to announce the following Guests of Honor in attendance at G.A.M.E. EXPO Year 9! Guests are listed alphabetic by last name.
LJ Cohen is a Boston area novelist, poet, blogger, ceramics artist, geek, and relentless optimist. After almost twenty-five years as a physical therapist specializing in chronic pain management, LJ now uses her anatomical knowledge and myriad clinical skills to injure characters in her science fiction and fantasy novels. When not doing battle with a stubborn Jack Russell Terrier mix or her equally headstrong border collie mutt, LJ can be found writing, which looks a lot like daydreaming.
Parallax (book 4 of the SF/Space Opera series Halcyone Space) will be available in June of 2017. Derelict, the first novel in the series, was chosen as a Library Journal Self-e Select title and book of the year in 2016.
LJ is active in IPNE (The Independent Publishers of New England), SFWA (The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America), and Broad Universe and blogs about publishing, general geekery, and other ephemera at http://www.ljcbluemuse.blogspot.com.
