Shaune Lafferty Webb


Shaune Lafferty Webb was born in Brisbane, Australia. Her father was an amateur astronomer and her eldest brother an avid science fiction reader, so perhaps it was inevitable that she developed an early enthusiasm for writing speculative fiction.

After obtaining a degree in geology from the University of Queensland, Shaune subsequently worked in geochemical laboratories, exploration companies, and, while living in the United States, at a multinational scientific institute involved in exploration beneath the ocean floors. A decade after returning to Australia, armed with a life-long addiction to SF and a broad scope of real-world research and editing experience, Shaune returned to her original passion, the writing of speculative fiction. Her short stories have appeared in AntipodeanSF, The Nautilus Engine, and Blue Crow Magazine.

Shaune lives in Brisbane with her research scientist husband and a slightly eccentric border collie.
