Marion Zimmer Bradley

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Marion Zimmer Bradley was an American author of science fiction, fantasy and science fantasy. She was born in Albany, New York on June 3, 1930. Her parents were Leslie Raymond Zimmer, a carpenter and Evelyn Zimmer, a historian. They were not a financially secure family. They had financial problems because they lived during the Great Depression of the 1930s.[1]

As a child, Bradley liked reading. She wrote science fiction and fantasy stories which were published in her school. Her goal was still to become an opera singer. Over time her works and participation in speculative fiction brought her recognition as a writer.[1]

Bradley is most famous for her novel The Mists of Avalon[2] and her Darkover novels.[1]
