The Summer Queen

Female Fantasy Authors, November 2012

Joan D. Vinge has had her hand on many film novelizations -- from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome to Ladyhawke to Cowboys & Aliens. It is the Hugo Award winning The Snow Queen, however, that has gripped readers and kicked off her Snow Queen Cycle, which is based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale. Her output has suffered since a dreadful car accident in 2002, coupled with other health issues, but she is back writing. Hopefully we will see much more from her in the near future.
