Cherryh is one of the most prolific and highly respected authors in the science fiction field, and has been named a Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America.

While working for WaRP Graphics (Elfquest), she joined a project to produce a graphic adaptation of C. J. Cherryh's Gate of Ivrel. This endeavor led her to a new home in Oklahoma City, where she found her calling and began writing her own novels. She lives in Spokane, Washington with partner C. J. Cherryh.

Reviews

Praise for the Alliance-Union universe:

"[Downbelow Station] has a marvelous perspective on humanity in the wider universe.... The plot is a complex maneuvering of factions and realignment of interests. There are space battles, and there are economics of space stations.... It's a novel about desperate people, desperate spacestations, desperate aliens, a desperate spacefleet that's out of choices." --Jo Walton, Hugo- and Nebula-award winning author of Among Others "Take one highly vulnerable space station. Pack it with realistic characters. And then start a war. You'll end up with 1982's Hugo winner, Downbelow Station, by C.J. Cherryh--and a hell of a story." --io9 "A solid, vividly realized background; excellent characterization of humans and aliens; and an ability to keep a story moving.... Intelligent space adventure, conceived and executed on a grand scale." --Booklist "Merchanter's Luck is a story of transformation, not magical or mysterious but accomplished slowly through hard work. It is also about the power of misunderstanding and the courage of trust.... Filled with background details, customs, and a past, Merchanter's Luck is another exceptional C.J. Cherryh novel." --Science Fiction Review "Cherryh tantalizes our minds with these enigmatic aliens, captures our hearts with her characters, and involves us completely with her mix of broad and narrow views of a culture's rise. Once again, Cherryh proves herself a consistently thoughtful and entertaining writer." --Publishers Weekly
