She has won six Hugo Awards and Six Nebula Awards, including both awards for the novel "Doomsday Book" (1993). She has also won a John W. Campbell Memorial Award for her first novel, "Lincoln's Dreams" (1987), and her first short story collection, "Fire Watch," was a New York Times Notable Book. Her most recent book is "Passage" (Bantam paperback, 2002). She lives with her family in Greeley, Colo.
