Elizabeth is a much-loved author of fantasy and science fiction, and during the writing of classic SF series such as The Serrano Legacy and Vatta’s War she’s done a lot of thinking about the way that future wars might be fought. She’s also seen active service in the United States Marine Corps, attaining the rank of First lieutenant.
