I have always been a voracious reader. My parents encouraged my love of books, a gift more valuable to me than anything else they could have given me. It was no surprise to anyone when I began writing. I dabbled with short stories for years, even publishing a few in small press magazines, until I found and joined a writing critique group, and tried my hand at writing novels. When I'm not writing, I enjoy reading, belly dancing and playing a pirate character at the Carolina Renaissance Faire, based on the pirates of the early 17th century. My novel, Mad Kestrel, was born from my fascination with pirates and my love of fantasy.

In 2015, I'm going to be editing a weird western anthology that's currently a Kickstarter project - we hope everyone wants to read it as much as we want to create it, so that we reach our goals. Take a look if you think it might be something you'd enjoy!

I love a good SF pandemic story. This book was beautifully written, but not SF at all. The pandemic wasn't all that central to the plot, so I lost interest.
Not the book's fault of course - I was recc'd it by a reviewer who should have been a little
