Jeffrey A. Carver

Program Participant

Jeffrey Carver
Jeffrey A. Carver is the author of sixteen science fiction novels, including Sunborn (the fourth installment of The Chaos Chronicles), Battlestar Galactica (a novelization of the reimagined miniseries), and Eternity's End, a grand-scale epic of conflict and mystery in the far future, which was a finalist for the Nebula Award.

Carver's writing involves elements of both hard science and psychology, and is character-focused while exploring possibilities for science and technology in the future, including nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and the possibilities for travel (and both contact and conflict) among the stars. His novels and stories explore not just technological but moral, ethical, and spiritual challenges for tomorrow.

In addition to writing, Carver teaches. In 1995, he developed and hosted an educational TV series, Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing--a live, interactive broadcast into middle school classrooms. Reaching into schools across the U.S., the show encouraged student writers to stretch their imaginations and learn the basic skills of storytelling and writing. Much of the that teaching is now free online for aspiring writers at He has also taught at the New England Young Writers Conference at Bread Loaf, Vermont, at the Odyssey Workshop in New Hampshire, and at the Ultimate Science Fiction Writing Workshop in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

A native of Huron, Ohio, Carver is a graduate of Brown University, with graduate work in marine resources management at the University of Rhode Island. He has been a high school wrestler, a scuba diving instructor, a quahog diver, a UPS sorter, a technical writer and developmental editor, a private pilot, and a stay-at-home dad. He lives with his family in the Boston area, and is a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and The Authors Guild.
