Lee Martindale wears several hats in the science fiction and fantasy genre. Since her first professional sale to Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Snows of Darkover, Lee’s short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies and venues, including Turn The Other Chick, Witch Way To The Mall, and Fangs For The Mammaries (all edited by Esther Friesner), three volumes of MZB’s Sword and Sorceress series, Warrior Wisewoman 2 (edited by Roby James), Catopolis (edited by Janet Dever-Pack & Martin Greenberg), and Low Port, edited by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller. She’s edited two anthologies of her own, Such A Pretty Face and The Ladies of Trade Town, and is the owner of HarpHaven Publishing. This weekend, she celebrates the release of HarpHaven Tales, a collection of her short stories in trade paperback and ebook editions.
When not slinging fiction, Lee is a Named Bard, a veteran human rights activist, a Lifetime Active Member of SFWA (where she’s serving her second term on the Board of Directors), a fencing member of the SFWA Musketeers, a member of the SCA, and a popular guest at science fiction conventions all over the country. She and her husband George live in Plano, TX, where she keeps friends and fans in the loop at http://www.HarpHaven.net.
