Emily Russell is a vast, slow-moving configuration of salty brainparts. She is a pitiless machine. She is a fifth-aspect goddess of hilariously minor ability.

She writes fantasy.

Emily Russell, Esquire, remembers life in the womb. Scratch that--she remembers life BEFORE the womb. She remembers life as an amoeba, drifiting along on the placid seas of the Devonian. She just kind of says things. Sometimes, they don't even make sense.

Other than writing, Emily's hobbies include writing. She is a friendly and fun person.

No, really.

Writing Excerpt: The Ice Diver.

I’ve been playing around with this story. I like it. I like it so much I made a little cover for it, just so it looked fancier on my page. What do y’all think? Basic premise: Aunat of High House lives out a bleak exile on Falen Island, where folk of the Warm World banished her ancestors over a hundred years ago on counts of treason and sedition. When a mysterious young man is shipwrecked on the...

This is a book totally outside my usual genre, so when I say I loved it, understand the full oddity and complexity of that statement.

The thing that makes Ms. Morris's novel appealing, even to romance-avoiding fantasy geeks like myself, is her
