Orson Scott Card was born in Richland, Washington on August 24, 1951 and raised in both California and Arizona. He attended Brigham Young University for his B.A. and the University of Utah for his Master's Degree. He spent two years in Brazil serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Card worked as an editor for BYU Press, Ensign Magazine, and Compute! Books and wrote religious plays, poems, and short stories such as "Ender's Game," for which he won a Hugo Award nomination. He married Kristine Allen in 1977 and they had five children, including one diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Card’s family moved to Greensboro, North Carolina in 1983 as part of his job at Compute! Books. Card rewrote "Ender’s Game" as both a full-length novel and a prequel to Speaker for the Dead. These two novels both earned Hugo and Nebula Awards.
