C. J. Cherryh planned to write since the age of ten. When she was older, she learned to use a type writer while triple-majoring in Classics, Latin and Greek. At 33, she signed over her first three books to DAW and has worked with DAW ever since. She can be found at cherryh.com.
"Eleventh in the "Foreigner "series, the longest single protagonist s career in science fiction, "Deceiver "is as elegantly complex and satisfying as its predecessors...Complicated and aided by the Aijii-Dowager Ilisidii and a rapidly maturing Cajeiri, Tabini s wayward son, the situation moves in Ms. Cherryh s inimitable style from detail to nuance to emotionally wrenching risks...another must-have from the master of cultural conflict." "Sacramento Book Review" "The worldbuilding and characterization are fascinating." "RT Book Review" "Cherryh's gift for conjuring believable alien cultures is in full force here, and her characters...are brought to life with a sure and convincing hand." "Publishers Weekly""
