  • About the Author

    Black Bead - authorJ.D. Lakey is at heart a sci-fi geek, comic book fan, and occasional mystic. Her love of science fiction stemmed from growing up on a cattle ranch and farm under the endless star-filled Montana skies as far from civilization as anyone in the twentieth century could get. There she explored the finer nuances of silence and the endless possibilities of the imagination. The shifting of fortunes finally granted her the time to gather all the stories and give them flesh. She currently lives in San Diego, California where she divides her time between her writing, commuting on the I-5 to get to one of her gigs, and spending time with her delightful grandchildren.
