Stephen Dedman grew up (though many would dispute this) on the outer limits of Perth's metropolitan area,
far enough from a good library that he had to make up his own sf and horror stories.
He continued to do this when he should have been studying, and after false starts at two
other universities, received a B.A. in Creative Writing and Film in 1984.
Since then, he's held too many boring jobs and a few interesting ones,
including actor, tutor, experimental subject, editorial assistant for Australian Physicist magazine,
education officer and used dinosaur salesman for the WA Museum, and the manager of a science fiction bookshop.
He's been writing for fun for more than thirty years, and for money for twenty;
he sold his first short story in 1977, and his first novel in 1995.
He quit yet another boring job in 1996 to write full time, and is currently working on two
novels and writing one new story a month.
