Sheri S. Tepper

Sheri Stewart Tepper (1929-2016) was an American writer of science fiction, horror and mystery novels. She was known for feminist science fiction, often with an ecofeminist slant.

She was born Shirley Stewart Douglas near Littleton, Colorado. She has written under several pseudonyms, including A. J. Orde, E. E. Horlak, and B. J. Oliphant.

Stewart recalled she "spent ten years...working all kinds of different jobs" as a single mother of two. She wrote some poetry and children's stories as Sheri S. Eberhart. From 1962 to 1986, she worked for Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood, finally as Executive Director.

By the mid-1980s, she was publishing science fiction novels, including The Revenants (1984), books of the True Game series (King’s Blood Four (1983), Necromancer Nine (1983), and Wizard’s Eleven (1984)). Other related works followed throughout the decade, including two other trilogies. Later novels in the 1990s and 2000s followed often, including Beauty (1991), which won a Locus Award; Shadow’s End (1994), Six Moon Dance (1998), Singer from the Sea (1999), The Visitor (2002), The Companions (2003), and The Margarets (2007).

As of 1998, she operated a guest ranch near Santa Fe, New Mexico.

In November 2015, she received the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement.

She married at 20, divorced in her late twenties. She married Gene Tepper in the late 1960s.

She died on October 22, 2016.
