I was born and raised in the foothills of Sunland, California. We had goats. We had chickens. We had rabbits. And we ate them. I had no idea this wasn't normal for Los Angeles until high school. My roommate teases me for being a redneck, but man do I miss fresh eggs every morning!

I was in the "slow" group of readers in first grade, but I loved stories, so I practiced hard and got better. In grade school, I took my first crack at writing, and managed a whole ten pages. I didn't know it at the time, but what I was writing was urban fantasy! In middle school, I found the genre in bookstores and "lost" about fifteen years, but didn't try to write again until a friend of mine published her first fantasy. Conveniently, I'd just gotten the news th

The Silvered by Tanya Huff

Tanya Huff rarely disappoints, and this is no exception. 4/5 because of too much reader confusion at the beginning, which is a turn-off, but most of this is sorted out by the second chapter.

“...My hands shook, and I stared at them. Another

“Irwin was difficult to wake; the poor man was totally wiped out. He collapsed in one of the soft office chairs the moment Smith let him, sliding back into slumber. After he was settled, I sat at my desk and reviewed Smith’s…no, Charles’s notes, shuffling the paper irritably to bring the print into focus. Someday, I’d come up with a melody that fixed my sight problems. And tomorrow, I thought, mocking myself, I’ll find a way to sing away fleas and retire rich.”
