Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
Born September 15, 1942 in Berkeley, California, Yarbro attended Berkeley schools through high school followed by three years at San Francisco State College (now University).
In November 1969 she married Donald Simpson and divorced in February 1982. She has no children.
A professional writer for over 35 years, Yarbro has worked in a wide variety of genres, from science fiction to westerns, from young adult adventure to historical horror.
Yarbro is the author of over 70 novels and numerous short stories. She is probably best known for her series of historical horror novels about the vampire Count Saint-Germain.
Aside from writing, she has worked as a cartographer, has read tarot cards and palms, and has composed music, all of which she continues to do. Over the years she has studied seven different instruments, voice, and musical theory: composition, voice, and piano have continued to be active interests for her.
On average, Yarbro writes three to four books a year, and one or two short stories and/or essays. She maintains a six-hour-a-day, six-days-a-week-at-the-keyboard schedule except when traveling. Five days a week she spends three to four hours doing research.
