David Gerrold started writing professionally in 1967. His first sale was The Trouble with Tribbles episode of Star Trek. Within five years, he had published seven novels, two books about television production, three anthologies, and a short story collection.
He was nominated for the Hugo and Nebula awards six times in four years. Since 1967, he has published more than forty books. Several of his novels are considered classics, including The Man Who Folded Himself, When HARLIE Was One, and the four books in The War Against The Chtorr.
Gerrold has written episodes for over a dozen different television series, including Star Trek, Star Trek Animated, Twilight Zone, Land of the Lost, Babylon 5, Sliders, Logan's Run, and Tales From The Darkside. He has had columns in six different magazines and two websites, including Starlog, Galileo, Profiles, PC-Techniques, Visual Developer, Yahoo, and GalaxyOnline. In 1995, he won the Hugo and Nebula for The Martian Child, about a single gay father, an autobiographical tale of his son's adoption.
David Gerrold lives in Northridge, CA with his son, Sean, four neurotic dogs, and two snotty cats. (yes, we know, "snotty cat" is redundant.) He continues to write books and annoy the neighbors.
