Biography

Bujold is the daughter of Robert Charles McMaster[1][2] and attributes her early interest in science fiction, as well as certain aspects of the Vorkosigan Saga, to his influence. He was editor[3] of the monumental Nondestructive Testing Handbook[4] generally referred to as McMaster on Materials.

Bujold writes that her experience growing up with a world-famous father is reflected in the same experience that her characters (Miles, Fiametta) have of growing up in the shadow of a "Great Man." She wonders why the insecurity complex and syndrome is known as "Son of the Great Man" instead of "Daughter of the Great Man."

Her brother, like her father, is also an engineer. Her brother helped provide technical details to support her writing of Falling Free.

Bujold currently lives in Minnesota. She is divorced and has two children.
