Marge Simon lives in Ocala, FL. She edits a column for
HWA Newsletter, "Blood & Spades: Poets of the Dark
Side," and serves on the HWA Board of Trustees.  She is
the second woman to be acknowledged by the SF & F
Poetry Association with a Grand Master Award.

She has won three Bram Stoker Awards, Rhysling
Awards for Best Long and Best Short Poetry, the Elgin
Award for Poetry Collection, the Dwarf Stars Award,
Strange Horizons Readers’ Award. Marge’s poems
and stories have appeared in
Asimov's SF, Silver Blade,

, to name a few. She attends the ICFA annually as

On a personal note, she has a daughter, Melle Tillison
Broaderick, and two lovely granddaughters. She married
a long time friend and colleague, Bruce Boston, in 2001.
Besides being a fantastic conversationalist and the love
of her life, he has taught her a great deal about writing
