I have a little short story in this anthology from Flame Tree Publishing! My story "Stardust" is about a sexbot with a heart of fire who finds her way out of a complicated relationship with a cop . . . all set in the future and with a 20s nostalgia feel.

I picked out what I wanted for my birthday, and his name was Hunter. ♥
He was out of my league, but I’d had just enough alcohol that things like that no longer seemed to matter. I’m not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like french fries, so there’s that. ;)

Women suffer silently in “toxic workplaces that reward mediocre men,” to quote Naya Llamas, the heroine of What Kind of Day. These women need th...Read more of this blog post »

Po dużym zawodzie jakim był „Alex Strangelove” od Netflixa niemal wszyscy moi czytelnicy polecali mi wybrać się do kina na „Love, Simon”, film o podobnym założeniu, ale zdecydowanie lepszej realizacji. I mieli rację. Do pewnego stopnia „Love, Simon” (przyzwyczaiłam się do angielskieg tytułu ale p...Read more of this blog post »
Sometimes authors come to me with very little idea of what they envision for their cover...and other times, they know exactly what they want. Now, knowing exactly what they want can occasionally be difficult, if that "what" is complicated. ;-) But other times, it makes it oh so easy to deliver a... Read more of this blog post »
My interest in ‘news’ and the political events across India (and the world) is sporadic at best. Most times, I am off the radar – I hear everything I want to know through friends who are better-informed – until such time as something happens that prompts me to sit up and do some reading on my own...Read more of this blog post »

Humans, it turns out, can annoy more than just one another. In fact, some animal populations are escaping their Homo sapiens cohabitants by sleeping more during the day, a new study finds.
Mammals across the globe are becoming increasingly nocturnal to avoid humans’ expanding presen...Read more of this blog post »
