Gwendalyn Cope grew up in a bad neighborhood in Philadelphia and to this day remains a hopeless outcast from polite society. She started her higher education at the University of Pennsylvania as a pre-med major, but eventually  moved to the midwest and graduated summa cum laude from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.  Gwen has worked as a carny, a picture framer, an oil burner nozzle-driller, a waitress, a gas station attendant, and a government worker.

In 2007 Gwen wrote, directed, and produced (with her husband, Dan) a low-budget, feature-length, digital, indie movie called Gameheads. It’s a comedy about a bunch of role-playing gamers, with the logline Imaginary swords, REAL problems. It premiered at the St. Louis science fiction convention, ARCHON, and was also shown at a small film festival in Oklahoma.

Horror writer and MFA student in Writing Popular Fiction at Seton Hill University, Gwen lives in Philadelphia once again.
