• World Fantasy Convention

    I’ll be at World Fantasy Convention in Baltimore this weekend, participating on programming for the very first time! I’ll be on a panel about “The Future of Fantasy” at 3:00 pm on Saturday. I’m going to try to get as many words down today for Nanowrimo as I possibly can before this weekend’s busy schedule. Wish me luck!

  • Capclave 2018

    I’m delighted to have been invited back to Capclave as a participant this year. After making significant progress this year in returning to writing and submitting short stories throughout these chronic health woes and the all encompassing demands of parenting two kiddos, I’m feeling confident and thrilled to be on programming again. My schedule is fantastic. I’m especially excited about…

  • Self-sabotage and the new me

    I apparently have Crohn’s disease. I’m still not 100% comfortable saying that out loud. It’s a hard definition to add to who I am and what I’ve been living with. I continue to feel skeptical, even as more and more tests come back with results that are consistent with the diagnosis (but not all of them). I don’t know if…

  • Quell

    Dear Quell, I received your email asking for stories about Quell users and their #smallvictories. I am not a visual artist or someone able to encompass how much the Quell has meant to our family in a single image or song or video. I’m a writer, and I wanted to share with you our story. It’s not something that I’m…

  • NaNoWriMo 2017

    When I decided to do NaNoWriMo this year, I was facing another surgery in October, almost a year to the date after the last one that still hasn’t healed *sigh*. It seemed like a perfect time to force myself to lay in bed, recover and get some words on the page. I’ve been rather remiss recently in writing and I…

  • Capclave

    This weekend I attended Capclave, the Washington Science Fiction Association’s annual science fiction/fantasy writing convention. Although I had attended Capclave two years ago for just one short evening, this was my first full weekend of attendance, and to be honest, my very first Con ever. A wonderful friend, Alan Smale (author of the extraordinary Clash of Eagles trilogy), recommended me…

  • That’s my name on the cover!

    It’s seriously exciting to see my name on the cover of a magazine. Here’s the brand new cover art release of Trysts of Fate, August 2016 edition. Available for purchase here: Trysts of Fate, Issue 6.

  • Thank you Slover Library!

    This past weekend, I was invited to take part in the Norfolk Slover Library’s very first science fiction convention, Get Your Geek Con. The panel that I participated in was focused on independent publishing and was organized by the editor of the Outliers of Speculative Fiction anthology that I was lucky to be a part of last year. L.A. Little…

  • Every little bit

    This week, on the day that I received my very first royalty check from the Outliers of Science Fiction, I also received an email inviting me to be part of another fantastic anthology: The Best of Abyss and Apex, Volume 2. Back in 2010, Wendy S. Delmater published the very first story I ever wrote, “Sunlight,” with glowing compliments and…

  • Shit happens.

    We were in the yard yesterday, the kids in shorts and bare feet, running through the muddy grass, delighting in the 75 degree temperatures just a few days after Christmas. I watched Patrick tense, his body visibly tighten, and stare out at the road. “I think there’s a cyclist down.” I took off running, peeling my gardening gloves off and…
