Award-winning mystery and fantasy author, EM Kaplan, was an 80s kid, spoonfed on six channels of a VHF dial TV. She grew up reading Agatha Christie and Edgar Rice Burroughs in rural Arizona where there were no sidewalks but plenty of tumbleweeds. A former wannabe spy, trombonist, toilet-cleaner, beginner ninja, and subversive marketeer, she currently lives in the frozen north with her husband, author JD Kaplan, kids, and dog.

I'd just like to be a full-time writer instead of a job-holder who writes on the side.

I don't need a Hollywood deal or screenplay option. I'd just like to be in a few more libraries, translated into Spanish and a couple more languages, and turned into audiobooks for the visually and time-impaired.

Above all, I want to be enjoyed.(less)

My To-Read List: Spartanica by Powers Molinar

Spartanica, the first book in The Survivors of Sapertys Series, is an engaging young-adult/teen science fiction adventure novel that traces the fates of middle-school brothers Ty and Marcus Mitchell after they find themselves abandoned among the apocalyptic ruins of a decimated metropolis on a parallel world.

Sounds good, right?
