About meHi, I'm Lucy. My short story "Magdala Amygdala" won the Bram Stoker Award for short fiction in 2013. I'm also the author of a series of urban fantasy novels from Del Rey:

· Spellbent
· Shotgun Sorceress
· Switchblade Goddess

You can find more stories about the characters in Spellbent in my new collection Orchid Carousals. My poetry collection Chimeric Machines was released in March 2009; in March 2010, it won the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Poetry.

I'm also the author of Sparks and Shadows, which won the 2008 Editors' Choice Black Quill Award for Best Dark Genre Collection. My humor collection Installing Linux on a Dead Badger came out in October 2007, and my erotica collection Orchid Carousals came out in 2013.

I'm a graduate of the Clarion workshop and for several years I've directed the Context Writing Workshops. Since January 2010, I've been an adjunct faculty member in Seton Hill University's MFA program in Writing Popular Fiction.

I write a column for Horror World on science and technology for writers. To date, I've made over 100 short fiction sales, over 60 poetry sales, and I've sold a bunch of nonfiction on topics ranging from faeries to medicinal botany to Ethernet switches

I live in Worthington, Ohio with my husband, Gary A. Braunbeck; we've written several stories together.

Climbing higher mountains
I will not descend downward
Until after I have conquered that fear
Clasping stars within my hands
They shall not stray from my touch
I am a dreamer
My wings lie in my mind
Where they allow me to divide the clouds
As I ascend through their cotton-like tufts
One cannot pierce my heart with any arrow
It is filled with pure bliss and compassion
No one will ever be able to seize that from me
Although at times my eyes may look wounded
My strength has never fled.
Courtney and Beth had a blast at Context! I'm so so SO jealous that I didn't go -- and we live, like, down the road from the Ramada Inn and La Hacienda Real. Oh well. Maybe next year.

Hi. I only just noticed your invitation to friend on LibraryThing. I had looked at your library and was interested. Hopefully you will find my collection intersting too.
GREAT library there Lucy. Nice to see you here.

Hi Lucy! Great library! Loved your poetry at Context -- thanks, too, for all your help there. Enjoyed it. May the dead badger live on. -- Mike A.
And the Short Story group as well.
