      • bioText: Chandra K. Clarke started out as a freelance reporter for a chain of agribusiness newspapers. This means that a) she had to endure a lot of jokes about being "outstanding in her field" and b) she has a really thick portfolio of articles on soybeans.

        If pressed, she'll admit that she's done hard time as a municipal beat reporter and a managing editor for a weekly newspaper. She has also freelanced for publications like Discovery Channel Online, Gale Research, and Spaceref.com. She has a diploma in robotics, a BA in English, and an MSc in Space Exploration Studies mainly so she can say "As a matter of fact, I am a rocket scientist." Always a glutton for punishment, she'll be starting her PhD soon.

        She got into humor and fiction writing when she discovered that it's much more fun to write when you actually admit you're making it up as you go along. She released her first novel, a sci-fi adventure called Taiamoora, in 1999. Her weekly humour column In My Humble Opinion is published worldwide in newspapers and magazines, and is available via email subscription at www.chandrakclarke.com

        Very happily married in January 2003, Chandra and her husband Terry Johnson run an editing and proofreading company, Scribendi.com

        as well.
