When I set out to write Lily I wanted to present a character that wasn't so vanilla. I wanted her to be someone who was fabulous at her calling, the racing, but a wreck in other parts of her life. I had already imagined Lily as someone with a pretty damaged past (otherwise, how would she get along so well with Byron!?) but was doing a pretty bad job managing that past. In my past, I've worked as a drug and alcohol counselor so I have seen first-hand how people use substances to help them cope. I figured Lily was pretty self-destructive so it made sense for her to cope in a way befitting her society: opium. Plus, I thought it would be fun to write about opium dens and the "fun" that happens there. So glad to hear you enjoyed the book. There is something about the medicated Lily that's a lot more fun than the sober version ;)(less)

I'm excited to share that Book 3 in my Steampunk Red Riding Hood series is now available! It's Christmas time and Clemeny is on a new case. I had a lot of fun digging into the lore (that sounds very Supernatural) for a Christmas monster for this one. And is that hearts aflutter I see? Let's have a look:
