Pamela Sargent is a science fiction author and editor who has written around 20 novels and has had several collections of her reasonable number of short short stories. She has also edited a series of anthologies, including Women of Wonder, and did the writing for the pin-up book Firebrands, featuring female heroes of science fiction and fantasy. Of further interest, she has written Star Trek novels. I have not read her novels, and some are for children, but there may be others of interest. The Venus series definitely is, details the terraforming and occupation of this planet. There are also associated short works such as Venus Flowers At Night.
