Short version:
Sela Carsen is an award-winning author of paranormal and sci-fi romance -- with or without sex and dead bodies. Your pick. She maintains a permanent nerd-on for fairytales and mythology, and openly hoards reference books about obscure folklore. Born a wanderer, she and her family have finally settled in the Midwest. Until they move again, at least.

Long and rambly, but funnier version:
In addition to writing, I’m a wife to a Darn Near Perfect Husband and mom to Two Great Kids. They used to be the Monkey children, but they seem to have settled down a bit. (That’s going to come back and bite me on the butt as soon as you read this!)

Finish. The damn. Book.

Deadlines.
It doesn't sound very glamourous or creative or fun, but if I don't have a deadlines, there's nothing for readers to read.
The fun is in the writing - I hang out in a chat room with other writers and we do lots of sprints and challenges.
I also make the writing fun for myself by including as many easter eggs and in-jokes as I can manage. They don't all make it to the final copy - sometimes they're too obscure or throw off the pacing - but it keeps me entertained.(less)

Ace’s Odds is in the wild!





Yes! ACE’S ODDS, the first book in my new series, is unleashed!





This was one of those projects that took a while to come together, but when it did, whew! Zoom! It actually ended up as two stories because by the time I finished the first one, I realized there had been another one simmering under the surface, so… bonus story!





This all started because I had to write a freebie for the September Feed Yo

“Just in front of her lay the Congaree Swamp National Forest. To prove it, a mosquito the size of a kitten landed on her arm and prepared to drill.”
Sela Carsen, Carolina Wolf
