Jan S. Gephardt is a writer, artist, and longtime science-fiction fan. Her debut sf novel, What’s Bred in the Bone, is now available. She hopes to produce the second of the Bones Trilogy, A Bone to Pick, by autumn. The books feature a pack of super-smart, bioengineered police dogs who struggle to establish themselves as full citizens of the space station where they live, while solving crimes and sniffing out bad guys.
Jan’s exhibited her fantasy artwork at sf conventions since 1981. Since 2007 she’s developed a unique paper-sculpture technique. Her artwork also has been featured in regionally exhibited one-person shows, and juried into mainstream national exhibitions all over the United States. She’s a member and former officer of ASFA. She lives in Kansas City, and is a longtime member of the Kansas City Science Fiction and Fantasy Society, Inc. (KaCSFFS).
