By the time she was fourteen, Laura Anne Gilman knew she would be an editor, a teacher, or a writer.

By thirty, she was all three. She's a little focused that way (when not being distracted by -oooh shiny!).

After fifteen years working in NY publishing, Laura Anne became a full-time writer, with more than twenty novels under her various bylines, including THE COLD EYE and SILVER ON THE ROAD, the Nebula Award-nominated Vineart War trilogy, and the 10-book, 4-novella Cosa Nostradamus series. She is also a serial short fiction writer, but her friends seem to like her anyway...

She's also the mystery writer L.A. Kornetsky.

Hi Lindsay!

I'm afraid that the four books are all that are planned...at the moment (my publisher decided they didn't want any more, and had me write the Portals duology instead - HEART OF BRIAR/SOUL OF FIRE).

However, it's not the last we'll see of Bonnie and her crew! The novella series "Sylvan Investigations" continues the story of the Cosa Nostradamus in NYC, starting with MILES TO GO and PROMISES TO KEEP, with THE WORK OF HUNTERS and AN INTERRUPTED CRY coming in 2015.

I went to post this morning, and got hit with the new ToS from Livejournal's Russian Overlords. 

I find that I cannot in clear conscience agree to them.  For one, a quick read of the translated terms tells me that Livejournal no longer pretends to adhere to the concept of Freedom of Speech and privacy as (still) practiced in the USA.  For those of us who occasionally have Opinions of the politi...

“I am a trained professional liar. Do not read me as a textbook.”
Laura Anne Gilman

“Manhattan in the morning is a living stream of Purpose; everyone's got a place to be and a problem on their mind. That doesn't mean it's and unfriendly place -- just busy and preoccupied. Personally, I love it. I'm a social creature but there are times and places you just don't want to do more than grunt at your fellow human being.”
Laura Anne Gilman

“Clever's not enough to hold me - I want characters who are more than devices to be moved about for Effect.”
