About meI an author and SF&F critic, a winner of The Writers of the Future Award. I write mostly science fiction and fantasy, much of it slanted toward young adults. I love to read crime fiction (mostly of the roman noir variety) but cannot ever see myself writing it.

My articles and reviews at various online magazines, mostly Black Gate. Wander over to my website and blog to check out more. My fiction will be appearing in upcoming print issues of Black Gate and next year's The Writers of the Future, Vol. XXVII.

When I'm not writing or reading, I'm out swing dancing.

About my libraryIf I had more space, I would catalog and organize my books efficiently at home; alas, currently they sprawl in a poorly organized battle formation across a haphazard array of different shelves and stored in various cupboards and closets.
