Working name of US writer Michaela-Marie Roessner-Herman (1950-    ). Her first novel, Walkabout Woman (1988), concerns an aboriginal heroine's travails in recovering the Dreamtime for her people; it won the John W Campbell Award and the William L Crawford Memorial Award. Vanishing Point (1993) is sf; like her earlier novel it involves a charismatic young woman and other Realities (here rationalized through particle physics and Alternate Worlds) and suffers somewhat from a degree of moral smugness.
