I write speculative fiction - sci-fi and fantasy, mostly. Occasionally I even write contemporary...ish. My best friends growing up were the combined works of Robin McKinley, Madeleine L'Engle, Anne McCaffrey, Andre Norton, and too many others to mention. New worlds, new ideas, it all fascinates me.

I drive a Jeep, love the outdoors, take pictures of everything I can, and write obsessively. I'm a lover of all things geek, and a proud gamer girl. My favorite game is and will likely always be Mass Effect. I've done everything from martial arts (taekwondo & a few others) to kayaking and sailing, to horseback riding, to teaching high school math. I love animals (and am owned by two cats), and have firm beliefs about a lot of things - but I tend to keep those to myself.
