Roberta Gellis

Roberta Gellis has a varied educational background--a master's degree in biochemistry and another in medieval literature--and working history: 10 years as a research chemist, many years as a free-lance editor of scientific manuscripts, and well over 30 years as a writer. She is married--to the same man for over 50 years (no mean feat in these days)--and lives in Lafayette, Indiana with her husband Charles and a lively Lakeland terrier called Taffy. She has one child, Mark, who teaches Rhetoric (a fancy name for expository writing) at Kettering University inMichigan. Mark is married to Sandra and they have a lovely daughter, Elizabeth.
