Sheila E. Gilbert began attending science fiction conventions 54 years ago, and still enjoys the opportunity they provide to interact with other fans of the genre. She has worked in publishing since 1970, starting at Ace Books, then moving to NAL in 1972, where she ran the Signet Science Fiction and Fantasy line. She also worked as a free-lancer for Dell, Warner, and Doubleday. In 1985, Sheila joined DAW Books, becoming a partner in the company and co-publisher with Betsy Wollheim. Sheila works closely with her many authors and art directs all her titles. Among her authors are a number of Canadians, including Tanya Huff, Michelle Sagara West, Fiona Patton, Violette Malan, Ed Willett, and Gerald Brandt. Over the years, she has been a guest at a number of regional conventions and writers’ conferences. In 2016, Sheila won the Hugo Award for Best Editor Long Form. Visit DAW’s website: dawbooks.com
