Sally Wiener Grotta is a full-time freelance writer. Among her numerous books are the novels The Winter Boy (a 2015 Locus Award nominee) and Jo Joe (selected as a Jewish Book Council Network book). Her hundreds of stories, columns, essays and reviews have appeared in scores of magazines, newspapers and journals. She has traveled on assignment throughout the world to all the continents (including three trips to Antarctic), plus many exotic islands (such as Papua New Guinea and Madagascar), covering a wide diversity of cultures and traditions. Her far-ranging experiences flavor her stories and presentations with a sense of wonder and otherliness, plus a healthy dose of common sense. A popular speaker who has appeared in venues large and small throughout North America, as well as on radio and TV, Sally also has a reputation for stimulating open, honest discussions about creativity, storytelling, the business of writing, and the nature of bias and prejudice. A member of SFWA and The Authors Guild, she is co-curator of the SFWA-sponsored Galactic Philadelphia reading series and co-chair of the Philadelphia Chapter of The Authors Guild.
