I'm currently trying to finish the zeroth draft of a steampunk novella called The Diary of a Man Who Disappeared, which takes place about 25 years after the end of my novel, and has a whole new cast of characters. I'm also proofing my new children's book, Bo Bo and Cha Cha Cook Up a Storm, which will be published by Epigram Books in October 2014.(less)

My agent, Kristopher O’Higgins (Scribe Agency), is currently shopping around two pieces of my long-form fiction, and I realized recently that there’s almost no trace of them here at my website (aside from a brief mention in my bio). So I’ve decided to put up a preview of each work, just a few thousand words, to give y’all a taste, and hopefully whet your appetite for more:

“I had a teacher I liked who used to say good fiction’s job was to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. I guess a big part of serious fiction’s purpose is to give the reader, who like all of us is sort of marooned in her own skull, to give her imaginative access to other selves. Since an ineluctable part of being a human self is suffering, part of what we humans come to art for is an experience of suffering, necessarily a vicarious experience, more like a sort of “generalization” of suffering. Does this make sense? We all suffer alone in the real world; true empathy’s impossible. But if a piece of fiction can allow us imaginatively to identify with a character’s pain, we might then also more easily conceive of others identifying with our own. This is nourishing, redemptive; we become less alone inside.”
David Foster Wallace

“Words are sacred. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones, in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.”

“Tell all the Truth but tell it slant--
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise

As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind--”
Emily Dickinson

Just looking at my favourite authors listed above:

American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Outside the Dog Museum by Jonathan Carroll
Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie
The Book of Laughter and Forgetting by Milan Kundera
If on a winter's night a traveler by Italo Calvino
1984 by George Orwell.

If you scroll through my "Read" bookshelf, you can see the ones I rated highly as well.


Olivia Brooks-scrivanich Hi, Do you suggest some books of your favourites.

I like it quite a lot so far. I'm only about halfway through, but it's very good. Nicola Griffith's a favorite writer of mine, and she doesn't disappoint.


Olivia Brooks-scrivanich How's the book "Always" do you like it?
