I’m a Minnesota-based fantasy writer with a novel, TURQUOISEBLOOD, out now. My second novel, DANA, is out to beta readers!

Why am I taking so long between books? I'm a founding partner of F-BOM, the Feminist Book of the Month. We promote indie women authors of science fiction and fantasy, bringing them out of the Amazon slush pile and into the hands of readers hungry for diversity! Learn more about us at www.F-BOM.com.

You can find me on Twitter as @CeceliaIsaac and on F-BOM's Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as in the F-BOM forums.
