UK-born writer, now resident in the USA. Her novels are sharp FEMINIST parables. Altogether Elsewhere (1985) depicts a NEAR FUTURE feminist backlash against male violence. Hatching Stones (1991) portrays a society in which males largely abandon females when GENETIC ENGINEERING allows them to clone "sons", although a modified form of the family survives in a quasi- UTOPIAN society where all the adults are female.
