Lawrence M. Schoen holds a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology, founded the Klingon Language Institute, runs a small press, and occasionally does work as a hypnotherapist specializing in authors' issues. He's been a finalist for Campbell Award, the Hugo Award, and the Nebula Award, and won the Coyotl Award. He writes humorous fantasy and science fiction, as well as more serious SF that explores ideas of prophecy, intolerance, speaking to the dead, predestination, and free will. Lawrence lives near Philadelphia with his wife, Valerie, who is neither a psychologist nor a Klingon speaker.
