   US writer of fantasy and sf, usually for older children, beginning with the Winter sequence of post- HOLOCAUST fantasies invoking King Arthur: Winter of Magic's Return (1985) and Tomorrow's Magic (1987).Of sf interest are: A Question of Destiny (1986), a young-adult sf thriller; Stinker from Space (1988 chap) and its sequel, Stinkers Return (1993); Under Alien Stars (1990), set on an Earth occupied by ALIENinvaders whose mores challenge human prejudices, and who themselves are under attack from space; and Weirdos of the Universe, Unite!
