Jaana Heino holds a medical degree from the University of Helsinki. She studies for a second Master's degree in the same university, this time in computer science and mathematics, and works full-time for the National Public Health Institute. Since this is not enough to fill her days, she also writes short stories, plays role-playing and computer games, practices medieval swordsmanship and takes dancing lessons, reads and posts to the Usenet News, hangs at various insider IRC channels, and reads a lot of science fiction and fantasy. She lives in Espoo, Finland (that's in Europe), in a house by the sea, with six other people and four cats. There is a man living in her bedroom, but no children in the house.
