About meAuthor of young adult historical fantasies Bewitching Season, Betraying Season, and Courtship and Curses, all from Henry Holt Books for Young Readers/Macmillan, and three adult contemporary fantasies forthcoming from Entangled Publishing; the first, By Jove, came out in June 2014. I also blog on 19th century history from a teen perspective at http://nineteenteen.com. Happily married for 29 years to a very patient man who doesn't complain about having to build me more bookshelves at frequent intervals. Mom of three not-too-screwed-up kids and a pair of adorable and imperious house rabbits. Quilter, gardener, sailor, antiques collector.
About my libraryPrimarily historical research books for my writing and other useful non-fiction in areas of personal interest like science, epidemiology, space, and travel, with a handful of my favorite fiction just for fun. These are all books physically in my possession (though I have started a wish list of books I want to read); my goal is to keep better track of what I have so I don't start acquiring second copies (which is just plain embarrassing). Cataloguing is still ongoing; I haven't gotten to much of my fiction yet, though I finally did my cookbooks after a year and a quarter here. :)
