I first started writing as soon as I was old enough to hold a pencil and fold pieces of paper together. My first book, full of pictures of unicorns (I was too young to know how to write), started me on the writing path I'm still on today: exploring different realities through science fiction and fantasy.

Since then, I've become better at "drawing pictures" with words than pencils. In addition to writing my own stuff, I'm also a teen services librarian and freelance editor and writer, writing primarily for children and teens. I most like to edit, workshop, coach, and proofread what I most like to read: novels and memoir. But I skillfully edit a wide range of materials to keep food on the table (and in my pets' dishes).

I'm expecting my first child in July, so my summer reading list is basically a crash course in parenting and domesticity. The stack consists of "Hypnobirthing" by Marie Mongan; "How to Raise a Family on Less Than Two Incomes" by Denise M. Topolnicki; "365 Ways to Live Cheap" by Trent Hamm; "The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" by La Leche League; "The Nursing Mother's Companion" by Kathleen Huggins; etc. A lot of these I'll use for reference and probably not read cover-to-cover. I'm also hoping to finish "Women Who Run With the Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes (which I've been reading slowly over the last couple months) and hopefully throw in some graphic novels for a break. And the audiobooks I listen to always end up being the "wild card" in my reading life!(less)

Eliza and Her MonstersEliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


What I loved about this book was the way that it portrayed the creative process.


Zappia GETS IT when it comes to the desire to escape into an imaginary world, when it comes to that world feeling more real than the one you live in, when it comes to living two lives simultaneously, and when it comes to ignoring real life so that you...

This book felt like it was banking on the success of Marissa Mayer's Lunar Chronicles series. It has many of the same elements -- androids/robots, space travel, a princess in exile. What it doesn't have is the same heart.
