    I thoroughly enjoyed Interference. It was a fascinating read that I couldn't wait to finish. Sort of a murder mystery/scientific exploration/new world novel, this is the sequel to Semiosis--but you don't *need* to have read the first book to understand this one.

    Reading Sue Burke's sequel to Semiosis, which was a terrific debut. The sequel may be even better. I'm a third way in and it's got me hooked.

    I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, lived briefly in Austin, Texas, y'all, and moved with my husband to Madrid, Spain, in December 1999. Then back to the US, specifically Chicago, in July 2016.

    I've worked for forty years as a journalist, both as a reporter and editor, and I translate from Spanish to English.

    I also write poetry, essays, and fiction, especially science fiction.
