About this author

I’m a (mostly) speculative fiction writer, freelance editor (fiction and nonfiction), knitwear designer (and tech editor), and founding member of a local writers group. Originally from Oregon, I studied engineering and worked in the aerospace industry before leaving to write and edit full-time. When away from my computer, I enjoy quilting, spinning, weaving, photography, and taking my adorable dog to the park in sunny Silicon Valley.

A Working Theory of LoveA Working Theory of Love by Scott Hutchins


My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I’ve never read a book like this before. What do I mean by that? Well, for one, this book is honest about the messiness of relationships, and all of the questions and self-doubt that occurs for most of us. Hutchins sprinkles hilarity throughout to light...

Margit Sage is on page 175 of 771 of The Goldfinch: The descriptions are priceless! "They were a pair of white mice, I thought--only Kitsey was a spun-sugar, fairy-princess mouse whereas Andy was more the kind of luckless, anemic, pet-shop mouse you might feed to your boa constructor."

Unfortunately, not nearly as good as the television series. I didn't like all of the omniscient head hoping. But, Phryne is an incredible character and I have to give Greenwood credit for developing her. I would be curious to continue reading the ser ...more

I had a hard time getting into this book. At first, the misogynistic culture was too much for me, but after a while, I discovered that the story is about the protagonist's struggle to be accepted as a powerful woman. This doesn't happen in this novel ...more

“The Four Agreements
1. Be impeccable with your word.
2. Don’t take anything personally.
3. Don’t make assumptions.
4. Always do your best. ”
Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

Gary Provost
“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”

John Wiswell Thanks for the recommendation on Valente's Deathless! I'd been eyeing that. It's one of the two books I thought would be the best starts at Valente for me.
