About this author

I'm 31, female, married, a voracious reader and writer with a BA in English from the University of New Hampshire (class of 2005). I just recently finished book three (Obscura) of a series that begins with Negatives, which is about a girl who can steal fragments of the souls of supernatural creatures if she takes a photo of them. The series in limbo at the moment until I can find an editor, but mainly because I'm busy earning a baking and pastry arts A.S.

I've been writing since I could write, but I really started taking it seriously at about age 12, when my English teacher had us using vocabulary words in stories instead of just sentences. I went on to take every creative writing class I could get into. As for reading, let's just say my dad'

I feel like the peak of my writing, not the peak of skill or outcome, but the peak of when I was writing the most, must have been middle school. I had a lot of enthusiasm, a decent sense of confidence in my abilities fed by various English teachers, a wealth of inspiration from all the books I was reading, and not much of an inner editor yet. I didn’t have much in the way of friends, never mind...

"A hell of a review from B&N: “The Unnoticeables is lean, mean, and perfectly balanced. It’s a rare find among urban fantasy novels: one that manages to genuinely terrify and excite in equal measure. It’s twisted, and original… an essential read fo..." Read more of this blog post »

There are quite a lot of genres to choose from here, lots of different protagonists (not all women or from a women's POV... it seems a lot of times when it's a male POV the woman is a femme fatale type, but I'll get into that). It's not all "feminist ...more

Catherynne M. Valente
“Why do you need that thing?" September asked. "None of the airports back home have them."
"They do. You just can't see them right," Betsy Basilstalk said with a grin. "All customs agents have them, otherwise, why would people agree to stand in line and be peered at and inspected? We all live inside the terrible engine of authority, and it grinds and shrieks and burns so that no one will say, lines on maps are silly. Where you live, the awful machinery is smaller, harder to see. Less honest, that's all. Whereas Rupert here? He's as honest as they come. Does what it says on the box.”

Susan Cain
“Or at school you might have been prodded to come “out of your shell”—that noxious expression which fails to appreciate that some animals naturally carry shelter everywhere they go, and that some humans are just the same.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Margaret Atwood
“There's more than one way to skin a cat, my father used to say; it bothered me, I didn't see why they would want to skin a cat even one way.”
Margaret Atwood, Surfacing

William Gibson
“I have often raised an eyebrow at hearing him sing, as I push a cart down some Safeway aisle, of the spiritual complexities induced by he admixture of Cuervo Gold, cocaine, and nineteen-year-old girls (in the hands of a man of, shall we say, a certain age). At which point I look around Frozen Foods and wonder: "Is anyone else hearing this?”
William Gibson, Distrust That Particular Flavor
