I am a sci-fi geek from upstate New York, where I crochet, watch Doctor Who, and threaten to run over people in my wheelchair. My work has been featured in several anthologies and my debut novella Anachronism is now available.

I write weird and hopeful sci-fi and fantasy full of LGBTQIA+ characters, disabled characters, and the occasional Jurassic Park references. I hope my stories can be a safe and welcoming place no matter your gender, ability, race, religion, or orientation.

I write stories I want my grandma to read without blushing - sex may be mentioned (I do love a good innuendo) but will never happen on the page, violence is handled with care and is not gory, and most stories do not contain swear words (the ones that do are used sparin

My mom saw it too and, thinking it dazed itself and fell, she searched the floor with our cat, who would have caught and eaten it if it was there. Nothing. Probably found a tiny portal to another world. ;)(less)

Of Dragon Genes And Pretty Girls

 So all of humanity is on a spaceship and there's no dragons, right? No, this is nothing like Chen D’Angelo and the Chinese-Italian Dragon, published in Dragon Bike. This is a totally different story about a generation ship and needing to find a Chinese dragon.

Swear.

This is a story about genetics and destiny and the ultimate quest to find a cute nickname for your girlfriend.

A long, long time ago,

Oh, this is lovely.

Two characters -- one a lost Fae girl who grew up as an owlet, one a human price running away from an abusive father -- narrate intertwining tales of love and magic in this retelling of Snow White. It's sweet and there are some cle

I hate giving bad reviews to anthologies I have stories in. I feel like I'm betraying them somehow, because we're supposed to be a team or a family or something, if that makes any sense. Am I not supposed to give reviews if they aren't positive? But ...more

Full disclosure: I'm one of the authors. Trying not to be biased though.

I generally prefer stories with more magic and nerdy Star Trek references. Explosions and dragons and robots. That kind of thing. That is not what this book is. There's a specula

I'm one of the authors but I'm trying not to be biased.

A mostly very good collection of fantasy based around Celtic mythology, which I feel is underrepresented in fantasy fiction. A nice variety, some humorous and some scary. I noticed a couple gramm

A very fun (and necessary) sequel with twists I didn't expect, but it loses one star because of the casual use of ableist slurs and the fact that the one disabled character is suddenly not disabled in the game world.
Also loses one star [edit] no, I d

Jasper Fforde
“If the real world were a book, it would never find a publisher. Overlong, detailed to the point of distraction-and ultimately, without a major resolution.”
Jasper Fforde, Something Rotten

April  Daniels
“I see a world that is terrified of me. Terrified of someone who would reject manhood. Terrified of a girl who knows who she is and what she’s capable of. They are small, and they are weak, and they will not hurt me ever again. My name is Danielle Tozer. I am a girl. No one is strong enough to take that from me anymore.”
April Daniels, Dreadnought

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“Dinosaurs are extinct today because they lacked opposable thumbs and the brainpower to build a space program.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson, The Sky Is Not the Limit: Adventures of an Urban Astrophysicist

Sarah Gailey
“It’s not a caper,” Houndstooth replied, sounding irritated. “It’s an operation. All aboveboard.”
Sarah Gailey, River of Teeth

Sarah Gailey
“In the early twentieth century, the Congress of our great nation debated a glorious plan to resolve a meat shortage in America. The idea was this: import hippos and raise them in Louisiana’s bayous. The hippos would eat the ruinously invasive water hyacinth; the American people would eat the hippos; everyone would go home happy. Well, except the hippos. They’d go home eaten. Much to everyone’s disappointment, Congress didn’t follow through on the plan, and today America lives a cursed life—a beef life, with nary a free-range hippo within the borders of our country.”
Sarah Gailey, River of Teeth
